This is what I do.
Attach the cleats to the shoes firmly but so that they can still move. Put the shoes on, clip into the pedals, then take your feet out of the shoes leaving the shoes in the pedals.
Move the pedal to the forward position, with the crank arm parralel to the floor. Now manually move the shoe around on the pedal till you get the right orientation, using the crank as a guide. Flip the shoe over and with a sharp pick, scribe a line following the outline of the cleat. Put your foot back in the shoe and release shoe, line up the outline on the shoe with the cleat and tighten the bolts.
No loctite, grease or oil and don't go nuts tightening the bolts, the threads in the shoes are not that tough.
Il faut de l'audace, encore de l'audace, toujours de l'audace
