I know that there is only one way to find out but is anyone running a 350 with .125 dome pistons, 58cc heads and rouhly .525 lift cam with roughly 250 dur.? If so could you tell me if you have had any clearance issues?

Thanks

you already answered it, there is only one way to find out, anything else is gambling whatever money you have invested in that motor.
if i was going to guess however (its your money not mine ), i think your real close to trouble with domes, fairly large duration, and decent lift. there are other aspects to be considered as well. so "are you feelin lucky?" i would highly reccomend checking, its a piece of cake anyway.
at any rate, good luck with it, and oh yeah, too bad you live so far, i've got a "rustang" that you wouldn't have to prowl hard for at all

I am running a 350 with .125 domes, a .525 lift, 248 duration cam, with 64cc camel humps without a problem. The clearance was very close as I recall, but don't remember exactly since I built it 5 years ago.
