that sounds kinda odd to me a 400 bloc is not set up for the factory rollar cam
you would need to weld the top of the lifter bosses to get more height then mill them flat plus the front of the block does not have room to correctly install the camthrust plate needed for a factory cam
why would they do that when they could simply use retro fit cam rollar cam and lifter no machining need
could it be a bowetie block or aftermarket block ?
any casting number on the back of the block where the bellhousing bolts up ?
