Looks factory except the retainer and maybe the spring. The spring seat is factory, even has the oil drain cut out.

To add to Lem's post:

Below is a pic of both the late-style OEM valve train fulcrums versus the OEM SCJ valve train fulcrums:



The late-style (pedestal) valve train fulcrum is on the left, and the SCJ valve train fulcrum on the right. The pedestal valve train fulctum has the square stand-off which fits squarely into the late-style head's slotted pedestal tower, thereby preventing the rocker arm from rotating off the valve stem. The SCJ fulcrum floats on its rocker stud, and thereby needs pushrod guideplates to maintain rocker arm alignment. The SCJ fulcrums are made of steel, while the late-style pedestal fulcrums seem to be a die-cast zinc alloy (best as I can tell).

The image in the OP's post clearly shows original SCJ fulcrums.

After closer looking at the photo enlarged, I see that those rockers are the "sled type".

The 429 PI, 460 PI, and 429 CJ all use the sled fulcrum like the SCJ and it's little brothers the Boss 302,Boss 351 & 351 HO.

The 429 & 460 bolt down fulcrum is slightly different than the 351 Cleveland & Aussie 302 Cleveland bolt down fulcrum.
