    got heads back form machine shop - and they put a bunch of rockers in a box.. this is a late 70s 454 block 4 bolt main...

    the gap between the rocker and retainer seem WAY too close - ironically i put on 1.5 rockers from a 350 and they seemed to fit perfectly -

    So - any chance these are 454 rockers?

    They don't look like small or big block chevy rockers to me.

    They look like cast rockers, not stamped steel.

    Those are 429-460 Ford rockers, it might be just a simple mix up by the shop. Another guy might be scratching his head looking at BBC rockers for his Ford heads.
