I'm finally back to my engine build and am in the process of messaging the oil squirters to clear the JE pistons and 3.825 stroke. What is the minimum clearance I need for the oil squirters to the pistons and to the big end of the rods?

FWIW someone on another forum said .080 and right now I'm at about .030 - .040 on the big end of the rods. The squirter to piston is hard to measure so in using my precision eyeballs I would say their at least .030

Not sure about minimum clearance, but I was able to clear tweaked (bent) factory squirters on a 3.9 stroke.

Thanks for the response. Do you have any pics I could use for comparison? Also what pistons did you use?

I'm using JE pistons so the pin ribs are closer to the center.
