5.0 roller lifters in 351C?

Have any of you tried putting 5.0 roller lifters in your Clevelands? I was told they were the same diameter, and that I could use the stock H-bars and Spider hold-down, if I tap the block for it.

My question is this: Are they the same length? Will the base circle of the camshaft be the same as a normal Cleveland?

Thanks!

You can use them l have done it many times you just need the right base circle on the cam which is about .200" smaller than std

Thanks, this is what I need to know.
Is it exactly .200 smaller? Do you have the base circle diameter?

Thanks!

The cam doesn't exist yet.
I guess I'll buy the lifters, then take some measurements to try to figure this out. The block is a 1970 model, with 2 bolt mains.

I appreciate your help.
