When using stock 5.7" rods in a 400 block, which rod bolts need clearanced for the cam? I know you don't have to do them all, but don't know which ones.

Also, how much do you have to grind off? Anybody got a measurement to work with?

Thanks in advance.

all your grinding off is a small portion of the rod bolt. i would put the block together and check which ones need clearancing and pull them out and touch them up. i only had a couple.if your trying to do this without putting it together grind a small amout of each inboard rod bolt. you may end up taking it apart anyway.

#2 and #6 is what I was told last night. No sense grinding on rods that don't need it, in my opinion.

What about balance?
