The easiest thing would be to stay with a flat tappet cam, but you need to locate the source of your valve lash problems first. If you want to go with a roller (which is a great choice if you can afford it) I think it would be much easier to buy a complete kit, cam, lifters, springs, retainers from one of the major manufacturers. Your heads should have screw in studs so guideplates will be easy but you'll have to use hardened push rods and non self aligning rocket arms. You'll also have to be mindful of guide to retainer clearence and valve to piston as well. Love those old montes btw
