351 Windsor valve "adjustment"

Hey all. Just replaced head gaskets on a 1993 150, 351w. I read that to adjust the valves (hydraulic lifters), torque them to the specified torque (20#'s) regardless of the engine/valve position. This doesn't make sense but is it right? I am anxious to get this truck going I appreciate all help. Thank you!

yeah the late model small blocks use a non adjustable pedestal rocker set up, if they are a stock head just bolt them on and go.

Great! Much easier/faster than rotating the engine 90 every time. Thank you very much
