390 roller rockers?

Started the 445 project. Picked up a 390 from a 66 galaxy and stripped it down to the bare block. Selling the other internals and manifold. Now I'm looking into what I want to do with it parts wise. I think I'm going with a roller engine but don't want to spend a a grand on rockers. Anyone know if these are any good?

I have not run them yet but I bought them on the advice of Larry at Valley Head Service. He is an old time racer and has rebuilt engines since Christ was a carpenter.
