Sorry I missed your post been busy !You need to find the valve set marks on the fly wheel peep hole at the bottom, also your engine will have a slack spot where the

dynatard lump is I beleive there is a small depression at that spot to allow the slave in the rocker to charge

your probably landing on that spot,Seting on valves rocking is not the best on these engines.
