Post Max valve lift (chevy)

I'm in the process of rebuilding a Chevy crate 350 (made in Mexico). I'm fairly confident the heads are 76cc with 1.94 intakes. I was considering installing a Crane cam with a 278 degree advertised duration and a .467 lift . Will this stock heads handle this lift without any modifications?

Thanks,
Paul

You should always put valve springs that match the cam on the heads.And change valve seals wile your there. I don't think .467 lift would give you a problem otherwise.Check piston/valve clearance & coil bind.

You should be safe up to around 500 lift with out mods.but it always a good Ideal to check clearances,a liitle extra time but Id rather be safe than sorry,PS Ive never had any problems up to 510 lift on a small block chevy.just a opinion (wrenchturner) I agree with 78 monte change your springs and seals

Thanks,
I was hopeing to get by with the factory heads until I could spring for a set of Vortec's. And I did not want to have to buy another cam just to run the factory heads.
