SBC oil pan question

I got a customer's boat in the shop that Im working on right now.
Im putting a 400 togather to replace the beaten down 350 that was in it, and Im using as many parts as I can off of the 350.
Ive heard the oil pans are notched on the 400's for clearence. Where exactly are the notches and how much so I can modify the 350 oil pan to fit on the 400 since it is a higher capacity oil pan.

The rod nuts may hit the pan along the block. I have used that pan on 400 or 350 were you put in a stroker. When you are building the engine, turn the engine over several times with the pan on and no gasket and see were it hits and work it over a little with a small ball peen hammer. Not all of the pans will hit.

Alright I wasn't for sure or not on this, and just wanted to make sure.
I put cleaned the pan and put it on the block and bolted it on without a gasket, and turned the crank by hand several times. No rubbing or anything, so I guess I don't have to change anything then.
Thanks
