My DOVE-C heads have factory rocker studs installed.
Can I buy off the shelf roller rockers or do I need to make modifications?
Ive heard some things about machining down the pedestals but im not sure if it applies.
Thanks in advance to all for weighing in.

I had my Dove-C heads pedestals cut down like it said in a book I had but then I ended up runing a longer stud to make my rockers work (using BBC 1.7) I think I would set them on your engine and try your rockers to see if it will all work out with the selected rockers you have dont forget you have to use guide plates with the adjustable studs witch will allso raise your stud some more.

Depends on which rockers you are gonna use. Details escape me right now. Might do a search. Been on here several times.
