Height parameter puzzle

I have a network dataset built which includes a parameter for vehicle height.  Starting at the same origin and continuing to the same destination, I try to solve for a vehicle of differing heights.  For example, the first test tries a vehicle of 14'2" (170 inches) and a route is successfully created.  The second test tries a vehicle of 14'6" (174 inches) and a route is NOT found -- this of course could be correct -- height issues could prohibit this vehicle.  BUT, I then try a vehicle of 15'2" (182 inches) and a route is successfully created. 

The question is:  how can the route solver find a way for a taller vehicle to get through when it is telling me that a 8" shorter one cannot get through?
