has anyone done valve seals on 2000 Prelude with 2.2 Dohc?

My son just bought a 2000 prelude 2.2 Dohc, and it needs valve seals. I can do the work, but would like to know if anyone has done these, do I have to remove the cylender head, and what if any special tools I will need? I looked around, but did not see any threads on this. If anyone can help, I would be grateful. Thanks.

It would be a lot easier if you removed the cylinder head. You should also consider using a valve spring compressor. This will compress the spring so you can remove the valve keepers. I think they also have a special tool that removes the valve guide seal as well.
