It sounds so simple and reasonable, there must be something wrong with it.That method, and using paint marks, etc-etc, are all ways of preserving the existing cam timing; however, neither makes sure the resulting timing is correct. If the timing was previously off a tooth, or more, all these methods do is preserve what was, even if it was wrong.

It's not difficult to time the engine from scratch, and doing so makes sure timing is correct.
