Chrome Rocker Covers

Hi all,
I have an issue with my chrome rocker covers being too low and making contact with my roller rockers. History of problem had regular rockers on engine and tried putting a pair of chrome covers on engine, they hit.. So I went back to old orange covers. Returned chrome covers.. Then I put on a set of roller rockers they cleared the stock covers fine. Next got a high quality pair of chrome covers and they still hit. My only guess is that they are thicker than the stock ones. Tall covers do not fit in my engine bay (wiper moter and alt ). I am not sure what type of cam is in the engine but I am guessing it must have a high lift. Anyone else have problems like this before? What did you do? I am thinking of siliconing 2 gaskets together on each side and hoping that should provide enough clearance.

Thanks,
Keith

Re: Chrome Rocker Covers

Nice looks like the biggest they have is .344. I will try a pair of those next time I have a summit order.

Thanks,
Keith
