Sounds like a good plan, I used that procedure on my 289HP and it was much happier than with the original rockers.
I prefer the iron guides, it replicates the original iron head guide, and they are reputed to outlast bronze guides. Mine are still perfect, after 100,000 miles or so, for what that's worth.
Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.
