I used to use that method, but have since gone to the "correct" method.
Just as the exaust valve starts to open off its seat, i adjust the inlet.
Then, when the inlet is at full lift, and half way down to its seat again, i set the exhaust. There isnt much in the 2 methods, but the latter definatly makes sure lifter is on the propper base of the cam.
Just make sure you dont confuse yourself half way.
