There is no need to make sure the motor is in a certain position. Just position the rockers and tighten them down... Torque them if you want to, but good and tight is all you need. Haven't had a rocker come loose yet.

Actualy there is a reason for that. If, by chance you have installed any lifters that have not bled down yet, positioning the engine so none of the pistons are at TDC is a good idea. It will keep you from bending a pushrod, or a rocker.
After tightening the rockers its a good idea to rotate the engine by hand just to make sure you don't have any problems.
