That's a good point. What I did was set cylinder one to TDC, then go around and back all of the valve rocker arm adjusters all the way out, before I broke everything down. I was VERY, VERY careful as I turned the engine over (clockwise) as I went through the motions. Perhaps it was "luck", but I didn't run into any trouble with valve to piston interference.
