What Jay says makes perfect sense and is the safest route. What Wayne said is what I was wondering.

I guess I will have to set it up and check it out. Perhaps I can check cam lifts etc in Anderson's book. I may try to initially measure with the head off using the top of the cylinder as a measurement datum. On second thought that won't work, it is all about timing.

What kind of valve to piston clearance is required? I was going to use the clay method unless someone has a better alternative. I am a bit hesitant to try even that with a good valve for fear of bending it.

Does anyone have a couple of worn out valves they could spare for me to use for valve / piston clearance checking?
