I have only experienced that problem once. I
guess we had an oddball block and the nut ends of the rod bolts were hitting the oil pan rails. The guy assembling the engine thought he had enough clearance but he was wrong. Fist race immediate explosion of high dollar parts, thats when we split.

There shouldn't be any problems.
