As for the interference, it is a pretty well documented problem in the stroker community and came up in several google searches when I was researching cams for my head swap. So it's not specific to clearwater heads, per se.
I can't disagree with you sir as you are correct. I've made my share of mistakes during this build that's for sure!

I'm wondering if Hesco's spacer would eliminate this problem? Or would I even have this problem with a stock cover?

Got it sitting flush today, lots of filing around drivers side head bolts.

Good deal. Once you fire it up make sure its not holding any valves slightly open. Mine originally sounded like I had a much more aggressive cam because a couple valves were held open. Put a vacuum gauge on it and the needle just bounced everywhere. Pulled the valve cover back off and I could see where a few of the valve springs were just barely touching. I have also thought about getting an OEM cover but never got around to it once I made the aftermarket one work.
