Default Cam Degreeing/Locking VTEC

Ok, so here's the issue. I'm trying to help a friend out and degree in his new Sk2Pro2 cams (B Series). I fully understand how to degree the cams, and we are using the peak lift method. My question is: How the FUCK do you get the VTEC rocker locked in? Ive tried the air pressure through the VTEC test hole, and blocking off the pressure relief passage. it sucks. The second method I've heard of, but can't seem to figure out, is the BB method. You're somehow supposed to take a BB, like from a BB gun, and hold the pins in the rockers or some shit. I want to know how to do this. Surely theres someone here that's done this..no BRMS don't come in here asking me to bring the motor down to you and let you do it for a small fee of $23424353456...i just need a little help. please. someone knows how to do this shit...and honda-tech sucks, so i dont need a link to that shithole of a forum either because i have searched. thanks

what you have to do is simply hummm of the valves and everything should fall into place

So you've tried using air?

The BB method
Slide the rocker shafts out just enough to take apart the rocker arms from one cylinder, both I & E. Take the 3 arms apart and pull the "piston" out of the small arm with a magnet. Put a small washer or "bb" in there so that when you put the piston back in, it is sticking out a little bit and not flush with the piston. When you put the 3 arms back together, you will have to squeeze them a bit, this is the VTEC pins being locked together. Install them back in the head and give it a go.
