Thanks for the link, Danthurs. It helps. You didn't mention how you held the valves up, but then i saw the air hose and the cylinder adapter in the fourth picture Now I feel good about the whole thing. I hate to rush into something and then screw up big time.

Thanks for the help everyone.
It really wont mater where you have teh piston, once you add air it will drop to BDC. Just push down on teh valve a bit after you compress teh spring, but have not removed the keepers. Also be carefull after springs are removed.

Thanks for the tip, I'll make sure to push on the valve to make sure it stays up before removing the keepers. It seems like it'* going to a little bit like a tight rope act when the spring are off and the only thing keeping the valve up is 120psi of compressed air. I guess thats why you only did two at a time
