1BAD80 Next time, do like I need to, put a dot of white paint or something so you can see it easier.
Glad to hear that you fixed the problem.

1BAD80 HQ PETE is correct. Compcams come ground 4 degrees advanced, and if you advanced this cam it will crash. I'd recheck the cam timing. has all the info on cam timing, spring bind,anything on cams,heads, rocker angle.

HQ Pete if the intake valves are hitting then the cam timeing maybe too advanced ,good luck .

wrenchturner poor mans respective: didn't check valve to piston clearance 480 lift my opinion should not have to be experimenting still don't understand why valves are hitting pistons intake only cold lash zero. To answer your question, port and polished 58 cc chamber, 184 intakes, poormans' heads. Always trying to hurt peoples' pride, pocket's not deep. Used to run 283. Ran 11.90's. Backyard budget man. Thanks for the response, respond back!

1BAD80 Why did you use 305 heads on a 350? they have less flow. The cam is probably to much lift and the valves are hitting the piston. Whatever you do dont crank the motor over until you find the problem. Bent valves or a cracked piston.Excessive ware on cam also.
Do the pistons have a valve relief cut into them?
Did you do a clay/ measure test for valve to piston gap?
