    Yes to all :shock:
    You need to check it, a normal cam should work but you may need to grind the rods a little. A .900 base cam should clear your stroke and work with your lifters. Either way, check it. My 427 SB, 4" stroke, had to have .300 tall lifters, .850 base circle cam and grind a little on the rods.

    Good work isn't cheap, and cheap work can't be good.

    I built a 385 chevy and used a doug herbert roller cam with small base circle...the horizontal bar lifters will not work (they bottomed out) i had to get a set of vertical lifters check out the prices of doug herberts cam was 200 and lifters are 189 cant beat the price and quality
