I used them when I ran girdles. No clearance issues at all.

I have several sets of tall VCs, all bought off eBay...a set of Ford Racing and 2 or 3 sets of Ansens. On my Boss 302 I had to remove the plate from underneath, but it's got taller rocker studs, etcetera.

look at the pix 5&6 from the bottom . they basically welded 2 valve covers together from the stock steely's they left the hump in where the breather goes and I dont like that part .

I wonder if scott cook , or tod buttermore or a.t, francis could cast us some like that ?

They would look better than the tall morosos , I think
