yeah, the valve will open a tiny bit. should be preload x rocker ratio or something like that. give it a minute and the lifter will bleed back down.
I never did check to see how much interference there would be without the spacer. But just looking at the new rockers installed, it pretty much looks obvious they need some kind of spacer. Taller valve covers would have been a lot easier but more expensive. I wouldn't have needed longer wires with tall valve covers, the wires I have are already too long to work really well without touching the headers. Concerning the wires, I just hope they stay put.Hmmn.
I wonder if just getting a set of taller valve covers and longer wires could have been easier, or clearancing the holley covers would have been possible.
