this being a new cam you don't want to be turning it over as much as you've been doing, you will wipe all the lube off the lobes & increase your chance of a wiped lobe.
get the valves adjusted correctly before going any further
& turn the engine over by hand while doing this. this is also a good time to set timing as you will be sure your at #1tdc when
both valves are closed on #1 cylinder
