Rocker, valve locks, retainers and springs have to come off. You will need a valve spring compressor.

or drop the piston, stuff some rope in there, and rotate the engine around to smash the rope in there and hold the valve up.

that way you dont have to worry about the air leaking out... just make sure you leave extra rope sticking out
