you want to adjust each rocker when that particular cylinder is on its fire rotation. i would assume that it is the same, anyways, i have roller rockers, not exactly sure of the differences of installation

Did you put the rocker guides back in? Those are the u shapped things that bolt under 2 rockers, the bases fit inside them...keeps the rockers straight. Why did you have the rockers off? What did you change?
