Bull****!!! You don't have to rotate crankshaft... Logic FOLKS! If you rotate the crankshaft to the 6 O'clock position what did you gain? Unless you removed the timing belt, NOTHING! All pistons are sequenced to the crank and all lifters are sequenced to the cam. The only item that ties them together is an item called a timing belt or chain. The 6.0L is predicated on a ZERO lash for Rocker Arm to Valve Spring tension or torque. It doesn't matter where the crankshaft is as long as you did not touch the timing belt.
1. After head and rocker box is located and studs (hopefully) are inserted but not torqued, Install pushrods and rocker arms, but do not torque these bolts. Only thread the rocker arm bolts in, to properly hold the pushrods under rockerarms.
2. Torque your head studs sequential, (follow the torque pattern). Complete the sequence of torquing up to 210 Ft. lbs. if using Ultra lube ARP.
3. Verify rockerarms and pushrods are still aligned (Lifter, pushrod, rockerarm). Then torque rockerarms.
End of lecture... I'll challenge anyone on this issue.
