Under valvetrain, where it says clearances, that would be piston to valve clearance, correct?

Hi,

the engine spec list is great, but has anyone the measurements for the Camshaft Bearing Bores width (length)?

Thank you for any input in advance.

I see that the valve face angle is 45* and the seat angle is listed as 46*.

Is this information correct? do they run interference valve jobs from GM?
