M42 Question!

Okay, so, the M42 has adjustable intake/exhaust cam gears stock. I was wondering how to go about adjusting them to get a little more performance out of my cams? I have read that if you adjust the intake cam gear to 5 degrees advanced and leave the exhaust cam alone, you can get some more ponies!

Anyone know how to do this? I don't wanna screw something up!

My advice to you: Don't F with it. If you are off by just a hair you are buying new valves.
