Roller Rockers and GTE style Walking cat valve covers

Have any of you tried running this?

I'm running a hydraulic roller cam with scorpion 1.6 roller rockers.

Over the weekend I set the preload twice and I'm still hearing some ticking noise. Now I'm wondering if the issue isn't rocker to valve cover interference.

Problem found, over time the double gasket has compressed - and put a the cover in contact with a lifter. I loosened up the valve cover and the noise stopped.
