Are these rocker arms the same? (picture)

OK, so I figured out that my Goodwrench 350 DOES have self-aligning rocker arms.

Below is a picture of one of the stamped self-aligning rockers off of the motor (left), and one of the roller-tipped rockers (right) I want to use on this motor. It would appear to me that these roller rockers qualify as "self-aligning". If the picture turned out good, you can see there is plenty of meat on either side of the roller that would make it impossible for it to "slide" off of the valve stem.

The distance between the meat on either side of the roller is about .100" wider than the indented part of the factory stamped rocker.

Am I off my rocker here , or will these do the job as a self-aligning rocker arm?

I'm feeling better about them now that I can compare them side to side. I looked again, and the roller is exactly the same width as the stamped indent in the factoy rocker. From there, it slopes out. On the roller rocker, it is more of a 90* angle, but I feel good about using them on the motor now.

I did not notice any clearance problems with the pushrod and the round hole. I am using a Comp Cams 268H w/.454" valve lift. These are 1.6 rockers, so that makes valve lift roughly .485". I look forward to hearing this one run!
