oil retricters sbc

Do I want to run any oil restriction to the top end of my sbc.It has solid roller cam,roller rockers.I have restricters in the back of my sbc.I wonder if I should put pipe plugs in place of restricters,for street use.The idea being more oil to cool the springs.Would this starve the mains on this 1968 350 010 block? Or cause any other problems?

You won't starve the mains, since you will just be returning it to original. These days the top cam / valve train manufactures do not recomend restrictors, especialy on a street motor. With the full mechanical roller valve train, the sbc delivers more oil to top then necessary, but the idea is extra cooling for the springs (as you mentioned).
