But you'll have to keep the valve from falling back into the cylinder. I know two ways.
1. "The old rope trick". Which is to push small diameter rope into the spark plug hole then bring the piston up until it will hold the valve in place.
2. Pressurize the cylinder with compressed air. I have done this one. I used the adapter from my compression tester. You could also use a leakdown tester as well.
But if you have time... It's like 12 bolts and a few connections to jerk the motor and pull the heads. While you at it you can fix all the annoying oil leaks!
