Scott, thanks.  Interpolating from the diagram, the height from rail to top chord of the pre-wood chip rebuilds is 10 ft 8 in.  PRR Class H21/H21A is 10 ft 6 in.

Two inches isn't necessarily a deal-breaker, but the wheelbase issues and different hopper orientation makes the Bowser conversion project a non-starter.
