It goes against everything that i was shown but i never torqued a cam that was having valve spring pressure on it so maybe there is a different way???Any help or feedback would be great. Thanks

I don't see what your talking about. Your right about making sure there is no spring pressure on the caps your tightening. The instructions look good to me. No one's ever said anything like this before?
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
