Hali, how to adjust hydraulic lifters in an assembled and running 273?

I aint hali , but I always loosened them off "on the heel of the cam" of course, tightened them down till the pushrod had no play/slack or preload , then turned the adj nut 1/2 to 3/4 turns tighter. Even ran a 406sbc at 1 turn tighter, trying to stop hyd roller lifter noise------

Bob should I do it with motor hot or do it matter?

I run them to .026 intake & .028 exhaust, per the cam card specs. As I set them, I make sure that I can spin the push rods with my fingers.
