I believe that the correct proceedure is
to set the intake as the exhaust starts to
open and the exhaust as the intake is
almost closed.
with mild unreground cams you can be pretty
informal with the "almost".
find a buddy with a twin cam alfa and pull the
cam cover.  spin the motor and observe.
playing around w/ regrinds and a degree
wheel has convinced me that the
base circle on these cams often occupies
only a few degree of rotation.  I've seen some
amazingly long ramps - friend's TR6 regrind
comes to mind.  Anyway, you need to be
very precise when adjusting regrinds as an error
will cause you to have too much lash and that is
a BAD thing for your valve train.
