BB lifter valley pan

I have the lifter valley pan out of the 396 and I was going to install it in the 427 but it doesn't look right to me with roller lifters. It looks like it would starve the lifters of oil since they stick up alot further than regular flat tappet lifters.
Should I leave this out of the motor with rollers?

Re: BB lifter valley pan

If the lifters are correct they would be fed by the oil galleys having nothing to do with a valley pan.

Re: BB lifter valley pan

Is it correct to say that the valley pan is designed just to keep heat away from the intake manifold?
