setting a hyd. cam by ear has been proven time and time again to be the best method- as far as your set + 1/2 turn method I just helped a guy who did that and couldn't get his engine to run for more than a few seconds... once he had oil pressure the extra 1/2 turn kept the valves from closing. Know what he said? "I did it just like the book told me to!" Albeit he was an elecrical engineer and I get nervous when they pick up anything more than a souldering iron.
