    As I recall from doing a few quite some years back, you can either grab the roll pin a(inside the valve bore) with needlenose pliers and move them down, or/then use a screwdriver blade as a wedge to push them out far enough to grab with regular pliers.

    The roll pins aren't in there *that* tight, you just want to push them straight up and out, no sideways pressure or you are just making it harder on yourself. :)
