I think the thing that's being missed here is that just backing off the rocker adjuster screws doesn't close all the valves when the engine is at TDC for cylinder #1. You need to rotate the crank to TDC for each cylinder and then remove the rocker arms for that cylinder. That's the deliberate/by-the-book way to do it. The other way is to just rotate the crank and watch whatever rockers you want to remove. You want to watch them by cylinder in pairs- intake and exhaust on the same cylinder. When the valves are closed at those rockers, stop there and remove those. Then rotate the crank again and watch for the next set of rockers to close that you want to remove.
