Air pressure in the cylinders will work, but beware that if a piston is at the bottom while this method is used, you run the risk of somehow losing the pressure, maybe something dropping on the valve, and losing the valve into the cylinder. By starting with number one piston at top, do those two, then rotate through the firing order carefully placing each piston at the top is a more positive approach to prevent the loss of a valve into the cylinder.

Good luck,
