Another Cam Degreeing Question

I'm wondering what you guys over in the USA prefer to use for checking valve to piston clearance I'm using a modelling clay although iv used solder wire for checking the squish I'm told that even that can expand back once the pressure is off.

I put a dial indicator on the valve and pushed the valve down until it touches the piston. Dial indicator shows you the distance traveled to the piston.

Same here... All that clay/ soldier squishing BS is just that BS. When you stop to consider the average human hair is .002" and the difference in a piston that hits and one that don't hit can be a matter of 3 or 4 hairs how much guess do you think there's room for?

I use solder to check squish as that is different from Ptv. Squish is on the shoulders of the pistons. I check Ptv with dial indicator.
