Just installed a solid lifter cam in my 454 and would like to know the correct way to adjust the valves. I've asked around and I seem to get many different answers. Just wanna do this right.
Thanks in advance

you want to adjust the rockers when it's lifter is on the cams base circle. check this post for a visual of the cam timing cycle. get a metal feeler gauge at your correct valve lash measurements and tighten the rocker nut down until the feeler slides between the valve stem and rocker tip with some resistance.
