No you are correct the cam has a smaller diameter with a regrind. To make up for this in a typical engine(not overhead cam) you would get longer pushrods or tighten down the rocker arms more. I ASSume on this overhead cam engine you could either shim the lash adjusters(lifters) to make up this difference, OR buy lash caps that sit between the lash adjutsers and cam fulcrum(rocker) or whatever it's called on the OHC engine.
