When,I questioned Brodix about this they recommended a min. of .070".
I can't see any witness marks on the cylinder walls from when it was running the 2.30" valves and having only .005" clearance,so is it safe to say it should be fine?
Anyone know what the factory valve size was on a L78 396bbc?

Yeah, I learned that one the hard way.
