To John's point, I have the newer style cams which I found much easier to torque to spec without moving the cam...John has the early style cams that use the large crows foot. I have found the earlier style much more awkward to keep secure while applying the torque.

One possible idea was to try and factor in some of this movement into the index hole selection crieria. For example, either retarding or advancing the cam ever so slightly so that once we've gotten it all torqued, the correct value reads on the dial gauge when we check it.
