Got here too late! The simple solution for stroker clearance is to use the cap screw rod rather than the bolt and nut version. These almost always clear the block and cam without grinding, if grinding is required it is minor and in a less highly loaded area than the bolt head.

Grindeing on rod bolt heads gives me the shivers, I avoid it period. Although I know people who do it, but I can't.
