You can also jam a bunch of 1/4-5/16" rope into the plug hole (with piston in a lower position) After you have a lot of rope (at least a couple of feet) jammed into the cyl. (make sure to leave some hanging out so it can be removed later <img src="graemlins/drunk.gif" border="0" alt="[drunk]" /> ) Turn the crank to bring the piston up, pushing the rope against the valves. Try it, you'll get good at it quick, and best of all, you'll never lose a valve because of a loss of air etc. Oh yeah, make sure the rockers are off (both valves closed or you might bend a valve)
