How many miles should one clock before changing the oil in a newly rollerised 8V? I'm sure this has already been addressed, but I can't seem to find it now.

I would say it's down to you.
I changed the oil filter, filled with cheap 10w40, ran it for about a mile, drained it, dropped the sump, cleaned it & the intake filter in the sump, I was fortunate as I found the sump to be pretty clean, a bit of mayonnaise where the breather pipe enters the sump at the rear.
Put it back together with new filter & 10w60 synth oil.
I'll just change as normal from now on.

As long as the sump was cleaned out and there wasn't anything too lumpy just go back to the normal service regime. There's nothing changed that needs to 'Run In' as it were.

Thanks Pete! I was hoping you would say that.

Good news on the oil, but did I read its necessary to check valve clearance after 100 miles? (Or just another delusion.)

Dropped the sump, after the rollers were installed and this is exactly how it looked like.
But other than that the oil was clean, all the loose parts were still there and luckily noting was sucked into the engine.
