Oh, Slick, amancuso - for what it's worth, I installed about half of the keepers with a small dot of bearing grease on either my index or middle finger, whichever reached the best. I found this SIGNIFICANTLY easier than actually using the keeper installation tool on many of the valves.

I reached in and approximated where the valve keeper grooves met the tip of my finger (area on the tip of my finger and the angle, if that makes sense), applied a small dot of bearing grease, stuck the valve keeper to the tip of my finger and reached back in and stuck it on the valve. Once you have the keeper pressed against the valve just "slide" up on your finger and the keeper will stay in the grooves.
