Your best bet is to do these few things:

1) go buy Wayne's "How to rebuild and modify...." book. It is only $30 or so and comes with a great CD if you order from pelican parts

The whole procedure is simplified and is easy to understand. I was confused before i got that book. Basically what you are going to do is only install the rockers for cylinder #1, make sure the cam is positioned so that the punch mark on the cam is at 12 o'clock, tension the cam with some vise grips against the case, make sure #1 is at TDC, adjust the valves for #1, then go through the procedure for setting the cams in the book

The best tool for this is the Z-block that holds a dial indicator exactly parallel to the valve. This is also available from pelican parts for like $25 i believe.
