Exclamation Fixing push rod tube leaks

Aussie Gazza came up with a good idea to fix leak from the lower O ring on my rear push rod tube. He suggested Opening the rocker box and removing the rocker shaft, rockers and push rods. Then Unbolt the push rod tube bases lift them and slide the whole assembly out to replace the O rings. The only problem I see is replacing the rocker shafts since the lifters have .100 preload. It will be difficult to get them back in while pushing down on the lifters. I would rather not take anything else loose if I don't have too since it is all sealed well. Has anyone else tried this, have any suggestions?
