You can add valve adjustment shims of varying thicknesses under the bucket that sits on top of the valve stem; changing the valve lash slightly. In order to attain your expected power output, the appropriate Lincoln Continental valve adjustment shims will leave your valves open for longer durations than normal.
there is no correct way to adjust the valves when a different cam was installed.
