I'm currently running stock, long slot rockers with a solid cam and .550 lift on my SBC. I know roller rockers would be the best to use, but I'm wondering if I'm stressing out the valve train with the stockers? With the typical lash on a solid cam there is a lot of slop at this point. I can just imagine the rockers dancing around and playing havoc on the rest of the parts at high RPM! Do you think I can safely go the season with the stock arms?

You will see a slightly faster rev on the rollers on a higher compressioned motor. It will free up the friction between the rocker and ball. It will do nothing but good.
