    hi guys, just about to start assembling my new 355 stroker kit,
    my engine machiner is on holidays so i can't contact him, wondering if anyone knew... should i b checking valve to piston clearance, he has supplied me with dishtops even thou iv raised the comp so i was thinking hes already thought of the clearance for me.. also how would i check it if i had to.. iv got new roller rockers and lifters do i hav to preload the lifters, how do i do that, and also he said i cant buy new pushrods till i check the lifter geometry is right how do i do that?

    sorry im not the best at engine building, i will hav a mechanic friend helping me but i wanna see what you guys think instead of just relying on what a mate thinks...
