    Will they fit with a 1.7 roller rocker?

    You'll have to grind out the webbing that holds the small oil baffle in place below the filler neck on the passenger side valve cover. A Dremel too will easily do that. My 1.7 Cranes fit under my stock valve covers on AFR heads with pedestal mount rockers just fine.

    You can grind it or do a little hammer work like I did. They'll work though.
