I have a really stupid question and I'm embarrassed that I don't already know. What's the proper way to adjust the valves on a stock 86 5.0? I am replacing a blown head gasket (heads check out ok) and want to get it back together this weekend.

Thanks.

Edit: Just posted this because on http://www.allfordmustangs.com/techarticles/headcamintakeswap.pdf, it simply says to get both lifters at their lowest point (heel of the cam) and tighten both rocker nuts to 18 ft/lbs. Just seems too simple...lol.
