What is best method to reinstall the cams after head gasket replacement? Had set time before removal, but the spring pressure on the valves obviously has things not so aligned. How do I reinstall?

If the head is already attached to the engine, move pistons to an all even level, I.E. none at TDC they should be halfway between stroke. (use a long screwdriver down the spark plug hole to check). Then install the Cam. Once the Cam is installed, turn the cam to ensure all valves are shut and rotate the crank to appropriate position for the pistons and put in time by slowly rotating the cam. If you make contact, stop and re-think what you have done.
