How do you tell a roller valve springs from flat-tap valve springs without a spring checker?

most roller valve springs are double springs and 1.460 up to 1.550 or more in diamiter ( stock is 1.250). they are normally taller than a stock spring as well. best way is to put it on a spring checker. you'd want 160 or so lbs at installed height if i remember right for a roller. some go up to 200lbs i believe.
