Because if you remove all the rockers there is no tendency for the cam to turn the engine because some rocker is pushing on a cam lobe. Take all the rockers off and the engine moves easily and stays put.

It was on a 116 engine. But I also own an M103 but I have not yet changed the seals. But it is in the job jar. What type of spring compressor are you using? I had to buy a special for the 116. Maybe I could borrow yours ??

I had the head off my M117 so I used a c-clamp compressor. I have a generic hooks-the-cam compressor. I've yet to see if it works on the M103.

Aren't the rockers matched?

Sure they are. You must be careful to get them back on the way they came off.
