Are you asking for the sequence, or for the specs?

Some will prob say it's wrong, but I do mine a little different. When either valve is near or slightly before peak lift set the other valve for that cylinder. It seems to give pretty consistent lash on my engine. If it goes very much past peak lift you will get into the overlap and it won't work.

I have heard of and used the other method you began stating earlier. It seems to be less forgiving than what I do now.

E.O.I.C
As exhaust starts to open , adjust intake
As intake goes just past full open and starts to close , adjust exhaust

By the way the 63 in my picture went 10.30 at 127+ last fall at rock falls with the 750 edelbrocks  on it. So far the only thing I have done to the edelbrocks is remove the ckokes. I will try a few things this year to get it closer to 10 flat. Very Happy
