good day

you will need to set the valves doing the valve overlap method

on 6 rotate the engine until the exhaust is starting to close and the intake is starting to open,this is avalve overlap or rock

set the valves on one,then rotate till 2 overlaps.set the valves on 5 and so on.let me know if you have anymore questions.
