350 HO short block
I have a 1969 350 HO short block. I have a set of 1967 670 72cc heads with 2.11/1.77 valves. I was thinking of putting this together and running it in my 65 Lemans. Concerned about valve clearance in regards to the block, keeping in mind it does have the notches for the large valves and the heads that came with it were same valves just smaller combustion chamber.
It's been decked at some point so with the right head gaskets I will have a deck clearance between the piston top and the quench surfaces of .045-.048".
I'm wondering how much valve lift I can get away with on the intake valve, and on the exhaust valve before shrouding makes it useless to have more lift. Pure street, AC, AT (stock converter), PB and 3.0 rear gear.
