Yes the rocker box can be a bit of a pain. If you get a small torch with a small point beam, you can see the ends of the rockers sitting in the pushrods. The  two exhausts can be seen from the front and the two inlet from the back, it helps if you have a small dentist type mirror that you can get from tool sales, and yes afterwards you will see each rocker move. You will find a few posts on this is you do a search. all the best with it.
