Adjusting valve lash on BBC

Ive searched the forums and there are a ton of posts on adjusting valve lash (preload), and everyone seems to have their own method. In my case I have a BBC, 496, hydraulic roller rockers. Pretty sure I need around .060 preload.

Ive read everything from doing them individually turning the crank by hand each time, to setting to #1 tdc and doing half, then #6 to tdc and doing the other half. Just want to be sure I do it right so if anyone has suggestions on how to do it correctly (not necessarily quickest way, I want to do it right!) then Im all ears. And by the same token, if anyone is in the Waterbury CT area that can give pointers, beer and food is on me!!!!
Thanks all!
