Pushrod guide plates,Machine heads or not?

I've heard it and seen it both ways but should I machine the pedestals the same width as the plates for correct geometry or just slap them on? I think I know the expensive answer thats coming, Afterthought,with roller arms...

I found the answer to my question, clevelands have pedestals that lock down the rocker arms and dont allow them to shift,thus no need for guide plates. crane makes a set of push rod guides but when these things fails it usually results in a cracked rocker arm.
