I have a project with a set of Brodix Track 1's of mine. I have had the pushrod area welded up for some extra meat to move the pinch over for the intake port. I have offset lifters and rockers are also T&D offset. I have a mill that I can set up for clearancing, but is there an easy, straight forward way to determine where the clearance should be? When you mock them up, of course the pushrod won't fit, so you are guessing a bit. Also, is the angle generally different than perpandicular to the head gasket surface? And finally, is there a long tool someone would suggest for plunging down that distance? I suppose the larger the diameter you use, the more leeway you have for error.
This isn't something I do every day, but I like tackling things like this. But any advice would sure be appreciated.
