The expansion rate might be a bit different, but the same holds true for any engine. Set it a bit tight cold, warm it completely up, check it hot and adjust it, making sure of the feel, then recheck when completely cold. Has worked for me for years. Just make sure you record your findings!!!

Why not just warm the motor up to 180*. Set the valves on cyl #1 to what the cam card says. Let it cool over night and then check that cyl cold and it will tell you what it should be set at cold JMO
Good luck
