The rockers will seem like they are just at zero lash after just a few seconds, especially since you blew all the oil out of them . Just adjust them once and forget it . There are great videos on the wiki article on replacing a camshaft that techinspector edited . You can't go wrong if you follow the procedure on adjusting the valves depicted in the video .
