360 valve adjustment method?????

I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried or heard of the 360 valve adjustment method on any Inline six engines? The reason why I am asking is because this is a common method used for Diesel Technicians to save time on there inline six engines. I double checked and the Diesel inline six companion and firing order is exactly the same as a gasoline inline six. So am guessing that it could be done with gasoline engines. This could save a lot of time since you only have to Bar the engine over only once to adjust all the valves in the engine. Soooo before I just assume it's the same and blow screw something up. I just wanted to ask if anyone has tried this. I have not seen anything online and the service manual does not say anything about this short cut.
