First ford engine build

hello gentlemen,
i am a mechanic/weekend warrior from socal. ive built a number of engines for myself & clients. my personal stuff always chevy strokers and some mopars. this is my first ford. my dad bought og owner of this truck & i have countless memories in it. i helped him build it 390 when i was 9yr. i plan on this being my last major project. to restore his 1975 f250 4x4 he left to me. engine is out, i completed oil mods to crank journals/oil pick up on block, block prepped and bored 4.090. ordered a 4 1/8 scat stroke kit, hv oil pump, isky 256 cam&lifters(keeping it really mild for a change),dbl roller chain, &thorly headersfresh from ceramic coat, 140amp 3g alt with mark 8 fan. im older now & want reliability first but with power for towing. far from the mud bogger chevys ive built. it will not be abused, just clean & strong in memory of my pop. my question is will i have issue with stock non adj rocker since block is decked & heads milled eventhough im gona run an extremely modest cam?
