    408 Stroker windage tray

    So the problem i have is that the rod bolts are hitting the windage tray on the new motor. so can i just put some washers between the windage tray and the block, or is there some other way? Thanks in advance for the input.

    here are some pics of the new toy!!!!

    damn looks like I was slow on the draw, but I'll just confirm it. Yes you need spacers. The washers you chose are perfect. Good luck with the rest of the install.

    sounds like your going in the right direction,any washer that spaces it away from the hitting rod bolts should do the trick.best of luck.heres a shot of the stud girdle i spoke of ,the spacers go ontop of it then the factory windage tray bolts to the studs,
