So I took the spark plug out rotated the engine till I felt compression coming from spark plug hole. Then slightly rotated engine rest of the way till the T for Top Dead Center was in the sight hole on flywheel shroud. Then set intake to .008 and exhaust to .017 both on low side since this is a 1975 Cub 1250 with over 600 hrs on it. Is this the correct procedure?

You should set them when the lifter is at its lowest point, doesn't matter how the engine is turned as long as the lifter is down as far as it will go.
