Valve to piston clearance

Im completely rebuilding a small journal 327 (only components re-used are the steel crank and the rods). I have .030 over 10.35:1 pistons and am in the process of selecting a cam, I have my eye on a .501 lift with 1.5:1 rocker arms (unless clearance permits 1.6:1 arms) and I'm concerned about valve to piston clearance. Is there a way to calculate clearance prior to purchasing my cam?
