4 Rods require grind to clear cam.

There is a small base circle cam that a lot of cam companies offer to solve this, but when you start stroking beyond the stock stroke and using beefier rod designs, many times you have to grind the clearance on several rods to make it all clear. So it isn't unusual for you to have this issue, just grind them enough to give .060 or so clearance and your done.
