Well, which ones do you need to be worried about.
I've fitted 800 and 1000cc Nikasil barrels to /5 bottom ends without clearance issues.
I've fitted 1000cc /7 barrels to /6 bottom ends without clearance issues.
As far as I know, the cranks are all dimensionally identical. Have you run into this clearance issue you keep warning us all about.
