I used an Eagle forged stroker crank with their forged "H" beam rods/ARP bolts and had no clearance issues with a Lunati roller cam. I did clearance the lower edge of the cylinders for clearance. Keep in mind you will probably need the stroker oil pan.

I used that same kit in a 3970010 block with a stock style oil pan and had no clearance problems. The rods come preclearanced from Eagle so you can run up to .600 lift with no problems. I didn't even need to clearance the sides of the block or the bottom of the cylinders with that kit.

That doesn't mean you won't have to though

that looks like a nice kit for the right money. I have a fresh set of GM 5.7" reconditioned I beam rods with arp bolts, and a GM 400 crank and flex plate & balancer I am planning on putting in a LH Dip stick 3970010 350 engine thats out of my sons 74 camaro. I'm thinking just having 400 crank mains turned to 350 mains and balancing the rotating assembly, and building my own old school 383 stroker with hyper 10.1 CR pistons. with my 062 vortec heads and comp 26918-16 beehive springs. its a street thumper.

Double, I don't think I would have had clearance problems either, just that I had the tool, the block was bare and it was an insurance thing for me, it's an 010 block as well.

I know that with H-beam rods the clearance between the rod and the bottom of the cylinder is alot less because of the extra material on the big end of the rods.

I am not saying that what you did was wrong or anything, (exactly the opposite actually...better safe than sorry) but different rods make a big difference in how much you have to clearance.

The SIR I beam rods have alot less material on the big end of the rod.
