Just to be clear...
the people that know are not me. They are the people that manufactured the cams and sold them to you. Use them!
You learn much faster and more effectively if you build on the information and recommendations from others rather than insist there is another way.
Do it the proven way then make changes once you have a baseline of knowledge and a modicum of experience.

Wow, nice to see you all are just as salty as ever. Always great reading your replies. However, "people that know" were once as ignorant as i seem to be...but hey, don't really care if i've insulted anyone. Like I said, just trying to learn.

I'll include pictures for ya next time...

Or do it your way and keeps us informed and entertained...
Who knows, you might end up there eventually.

Alternatively you could possibly use a borescope or fibre optic endoscope to visually inspect inside the assembled engine, but that would prove very expensive if you don't have somebody in the optics related industry.
I have a 15 quid borescope from ebay.
Does the job perfectly.

To the op, get some soft wax in there and make sure you have clearance (or get on ebay and buy a 15 quid bore scope so you can watch the valve to piston clearance)
Once confirmed get building that engine
