Just did this a weekend ago. You can rough time the engine by getting both your cam "dots" on the ends of the cams pointing up, and then setting the engine to TDC on 1. You can then carefully assemble the head/cam blocks back to the short block. Then attach your chains, and re-time the engine as normal. We didn't even really need to loosen rockers, although we did loosen 1 and 4 to be safe. With SC cams I can't imagine you'll need to.
