Are the grommets included? I went to install my breathers (Stant 10075) and found I did not get grommets with my covers. Are the grommets normally provided? Also, are they taller than a typical valve cover grommet? The fins interfere with the stock height of the breathers and it looks like I need a grommet that would be taller than normal to set a breather above the fins.

These valve covers do not come with grommets. It appears that you would need a standard grommet such as 5506375 but make sure that your breather is 1" OD where it is inserted into the grommet. With the design of the breather you have there is a good chance that the bottom of the breather will touch fins on this valve. It will work as long as you are ok with the breather touching the fins. There will be some slight rubbing from vibration but I don't see it being a big concern personally.
