What is the correct way to set valves on a roller cam

As with any cam , set the intake lash as the exhaust valve on the same cylinder start's to open , and set the exhaust lash as the intake valve on the same cylinder closes . Nothing special need's to be done other than that .

regardless of the lifter type. a point that i have seen so many people forget.
don't push (feed) your feeler gauge in under the roller tip of the rocker. slide the feeler across the roller tip (in line with its axis) otherwise the roller will help the feeler go under by rolling it and not give a true reading.
just a tip.

steve, why cant you set them both on the compression stroke when the piston is at tdc?

Because the way that I wrote about guarantees that the lifter is not on the lobe . Try it both ways , and you'll see some variation .

All valve lash setting's that come with your cam card are for setting the valves hot . Once your valves are adjusted correctly you can check them cold and set them cold in the future . I personally always set mine hot though .

Something else to remember is your stud girdle. Your lash will change when you retighten the girtle. The way I keep this to a minimum is only loosen the clamp bolt closest to the valves your adjusting. This can sometimes be a real time consummer.
