Roller Rockers 304 V-8

I purchased a set of Comp Cams 1.6 Roller Rockers with 7/16" Poly Locks. These are the only Roller Rockers I have been able to find for an AMC. My 1978 CJ-7 with Stock Heads don't even have studs. Each set of stock rockers are joined with a bridge/connector with what seems to be 1 5/16" bolts used with each rocker to bolt it to the head.

How can these work without some sort of bushing to make up the difference between the 5/16" and 7/16" in order to bolt the rockers on? Is there a better set out there which will just bolt on - the guys at JEGs never seem to have much experience with AMCs.

send the rockers back the only way they will work is pulling the heads off and having them machined to fit

harland makes a direct replacment rocker and why rollers unless your motor is a lot more then stock you do not need rollers
