Can i have my solid roller cam re-ground?

I am trying to put together a 400SBC and use what parts that i already have,i have a good set of solid roller lifters but the cam is too big around 610 lift (do not know duration)can i just buy a right size solid roller cam or can i have this one re-ground?Would you toss stock rods and dished pistons and get 5.7 rods,and flat top pistons?This is going into a 68 Camaro w/3:89 gears TH350 that will be driven on the street.What type of heads would you reccomend?

Yes you can have the cam re-round, send it to the cam manufacture of your choice and they can help you out. I would suggest Isky or Engle for that type of work maybe even Comp.

You need to be a little more specific with your head request. How mush do you want to spend? What is your goal? (daily driver, street/strip, etc...)

There are all kinds of good heads out there. From the Vortecs to Pro Topline (AFR, Dart, World, Trick Flow, Canfield, etc..) If you are talking old style Chevy castings I would say pass on them and get a set of Vortecs if you are starting from scratch (meaning you don't have any rocker arms, springs, etc...).
