There is an adaptor for an air fitting to sparkplug hole. Set cylinder to TDC one at a time and pressurize the cylinder. (be careful) there is a tool available to compress the springs and remove the keepers. The air holds the valves shut so that you can replace the seals and re install the springs and locks. I personally havent used that method in at least 20 years, but many swear by it.
