That said, no, with the piston at TDC there is not enough “drop” to actually lose the valve, but you will play heck getting around and under everything to retrieve it.

Oh, and I believe it’s cylinder 2 that has to be just beyond TDC, so there is a bit more pucker factor there.

I will be starting this very job next week.. and I will be going with rope.
Do you know if you have to follow instructions provided with the tool kit (if any), or are there step by step instructions available somewhere other than videos that can be lost or deleted from YouTube?
