I'd still check because I don't know what your block is and what pistons you have. But if they are dished you should be ok. I'm not gonna tell you for sure because I don't know if there's a difference between a regular truck short block and the Lightning short block. But the 2.02 valves were fine in the L. FWIW I am actually using the 1.7 rockers and the crane Lightning cam and am still ok. I have a custom cam on the way with more lift and duration and will still work but only because it's bein timed right so I won't have PV issues.
