So you are going to go back to stock rockers to fix valve float? So you can rev it more than the 5400 it will turn now?I have always wondered if its really neccesary to run full roller rockers on a engine with less than 550 lift? I know big blocks have some pretty heavy valve train bits (stock) and was conemplating going back to a high performance version of a stock rocker on my engine. Reason being I purchased a nova with a pretty healthy 396 in it and its going into valve float at 5400 rpm with the following cam and springs.Fair idle, moderate performance usage, good mid
range to upper RPM torque and HP, mild bracket racing,
Street, Heavy, Pro ET, Street ET, etc., auto trans
w/2500+ converter, 3000-3400 cruise RPM, oval
track; Street Stock, Enduro, Hobby, etc., 1/4-3/8 mile,
serious off road, 9.5 to 11.0 compression ratio advised.

Why not fix the pproblem instead of using a band aid?
