Retro Valve Covers

Been thinking about getting some different valve covers and going retro... Anyone know if these old school ones will clear Jesel Pro Shaft Rockers?

I'm sure they would clear my Comp ProMagnum roller rockers John. Let me know if you need to swap your Jesels out due to clearance issues. I'd be more than happy to help you out by swapping mine for yours. No, don't thank me. I'm just that kind of guy. :smt003
