    stock 429 valve covers/aftermarket rockers..

    I'm toying with the idea of making my 72 look a little more sleeper style. I have Harlan Sharpe 1.7 roller rockers on my 532 and I'm wondering if they will fit on a set of stock 429 valve covers...

      Cody,

      While I have not personally used the stock valve covers with roller rockers, attached is a thread that may help you with your question.

      Hope this helps.

        Yes.I ran Crane Gold ockers 1.73's with no problems.I think I had to remove the baffels under the oil cap holes.Been a few years back.
