No. I meant valve-to-piston clearance. The piston-to-head clearance is another issue.

If you check the valve/piston clearance after timing the cams and it's okay, you're fine.

However, let's assume the clearance is insufficient. The top end now has to come off and the pistons machined or whatever it takes to restore adequate clearance. Timing the cams and using up the head and cyl. base gaskets then was just an exercise that you'll end up repeating. Make sense?
