Default What rockers under stock valve covers?

After using search and reading for a while, I'm still left scratching my head on this one....

What are the best 1.7 rockers (adjustable or not) that will fit under a stock valve cover? I've been looking at Jessel, YT, HS, etc, but am not sure which way to go to keep it all under the stock cover.

I here some people say YT and HS require getting that spacer for the stock valve cover. you can always just keep your stock rockers and upgrade them with the comp cams trunnion mod.

Jesel Sportsman Shaft Mounts (non-adjustable), Yella Terra Ultralites, and some of the Harland Sharp rockers are designed to fit underneath the stock valve cover. There may be exceptions, and there may be cases where you actually need to file or Dremel a place or two to make it work.

I would also be concerned with selecting a rocker that will handle the spring pressure. For example, the Jesels are rated to 900 pounds of open spring pressure, whereas the Yella Terras, (and stock rockers for that matter) are only reliable up to 400 pounds of open spring pressure.
