I've been through this with my 69. I'm running a 496 big block with Canfield aluminum heads AND factory AC. You will NOT be able to use tall valve covers. I originally had the large Scorpion 1.7 aluminum roller rockers under tall valve covers, no way in hell to fit it in. I had to change the rocker arms to Comp Cams Pro Magnum roller rockers. These fit under a regular height valve cover so you can get the motor to fit even with a booster and Evaperator box like mine has.
