IF you fabricate(compression gauge fitting) a way to put compressed air into the spark plug hole, it will keep the valve closed so you can remove the keepers. Check with Autozone, Pep Boys ect. for a valve spring tool to do it with.

  • jwko - if no air is available you could fill the cylinder with small rope and bring piston up to keep valve from falling in. if air is available, buy a compression tester w/hose(sears) as the fittings are usually the same as any air chuck.
