Your machine shop will have a book with the valve stem height spec's . Once they do a valve job , they will (and they better) check the valve stem height , and cut the proper amount off of the tip of the valve to set the correct height . At that point , your valve height will be set , so when you bolt your rocker arms on , your valves will be set . Make sure that your machine shop checks your valve stem height , and re-set's it once your valve job has been done !

Another option is to get hats for the valve stems. Your machine shop should take this into consideration prior to machining. Hats come in different sizes, measure the gap, and install the proper hat.Easy. I think it would be cheaper than a good set of adjustable push rods.
