No, ignore the crosses. The dots on the cams and the timing pinion are what you need to look at. Ignore what appears to be a second, upper dot on this exhaust cam where it faces the inlet cam, it is just a stain. The lower dot is the one to look at. You can see that in this case, the inlet cam is retarded by 1 tooth in relation to it. The pair of dots together on the exhaust cam line up with the dot on the timing pinion.

Put them in the engine and run it, they will soon shine up  ;)

You need to stop where you are at and find someone to help you that knows and understands engine assembly.  I'm scared you're going to break your motor.    :-\

To adjust pushrods... BW does include in his instructions to check for valve interference. So this before putting in plug. Don't bend a valve!

Go to You tube, search for "royal enfield adjust", find the video (link here: http://youtu.be/4bmgJPyCUNU) from hoohoohoblin. Ignore the part about the ammeter deflecting, find TDC, everything else is the same except for the wrench sizes. Do this with cold engine.

Good luck.

Did anyone have to adjust their carbs after installing S cams?  Also i feel like my kickstarter has gotten immensly harder to push down since installing s cams.  I got an old stock set, maybe its because theyre not broken in?

Without the compression release lever, you have to put moderate pressure on the kickstarter until the piston slowly gets past the compression at TDC, before you kick start it.
Allow the compression to leak past the rings, by giving foot pressure slowly, and it will be easier to kick after it gets to the top.

What plug?

535 should work fine with the S cams.
