lifter bore grooving tool

so im doing my first cam install into my 350

i was wondering, since all the 350 internals are in if i would have enough clearance to use the grooving tool when i pull out the cam and other necessary stuff for the cam swap.
also is it worth it as far as camshaft longevity and if thats a tool that can usually be rented....id rather not pay 150 for a tool i'll only use once.
thanks
Dean

I wouldn't do any grinding on a partially assembled block. If you can not thoroughly clean the block after, I wouldn't consider it.
Just use a break in additive after installing the new cam.
