    I have the chuck to keep air pressure on the cylinder through the spark plug hole. How much pressure do I need to keep on it. What exactly is this doing? Other options on how to do it? Come to my house and get greasy tomorrow?

    The air is to keep the valves closed and from dropping into the cylinder while you change the seals. How much air is needed i really don't know but it isn't hard to do.
