Yep I did that too (put some grease on the stem) and they still keep falling out. That's when I laid it on it's side and the process went much smoother.

Another point I would like to make on replacing the oil seals. I purchase the tool like the one earlier in the post (the one with the tagel clamp). But after doing 6 of the 8 valve one of the small rods broke off of the collar. But a friend of mine came to the rescue with a tool that has a screw type mech. After using both types of tools I would recommend the screw type tool it is more controllable and is much easier to use. I ended up having the rods welded . But if I need to do this job again I am going to purchase the screw type tool.
