Re: 383 rod to cam clearance
Most of the cap screw rods have enough room but you really need to check it. I use a piece of .050 thick mechanics wire that is bent at the end and just slowly turn the crank until it looks like it is at the closest spot, then see if I can slide the wire through. I have tried putting a little bit of clay on the rod, but that does not seem to work very good. It is time consuming, but you absolutely have to check it.
