What heads are you using?
Have the decks been milled?
What rocker arms are you using?
Has the rocker stud boss been machined?
What length valves are you using?
Is the base circle of the cam reduced?
Has the block been milled?
What is the quench distance?

If you have a stock length pushrod, install it correctly and watch it as you turn the motor.

Squish, Quench, and Piston-to-Head Clearance



Quench area, on the left, piston to head clearance.


There´s enough information here to sink a ship....
