It may be possible for a rookie to have the finger and thumb "feel" necessary to use the "spin the pushrod" method and get the valve adjustment correct, but 99 times out of 100, the valves will end up too tight as related above. Please read through this tutorial and implement its instructions. It's pretty much bulletproof and I have received PM's from many fellows saying so....
