Bela ,
If the camshaft is a late 403/404/405 grind the advertised timing is
Inlet opening 36 BTDC
Inlet Closing 76 ABDC
Duration 292 deg (this is further away from the 258 deg of the notes.)
Lobe lift .205 inch
Recommended valve clearance .005 cold

I suggest you adjust the valve clearance firstly at .002 inch and rotate engine until you can not push the rocker sideways , as per my earlier post.
Then repeat at .005 inch clearance

The hand written notes could have been of the original badly worn camshaft before the engine was stripped for a rebuild.
