2 5/8 tall valve covers with roller rockers?

Hey guys I have a set of 2 5/8 tall steel chrome stock looking valve covers on my 396. I have a set of crane gold roller rockers I want to put on my motor. Will they fit under theses valve covers? The deep side measures 2 5/8 from the flange. The next size I can find that look stock are 3 5/16 tall and would come real close to my brake power booster. Help anyone???

Different rockers thicker gaskets and cam lift all come into play. So does the type of lock nut used.

Wish I could help you with that. It's been a long time since I've had a set of stock big block V covers around here.

There are some cheater chrome valve covers that are supposed to clear roller rockers. The look just like the stock ones, not sure who sells them though.
