Usually its easier to be done with head off for the valve springs have to come out along with collets and keepers.
But it can be done with compessed air blown into cylinder at tdc and using a specail tool to push collts down to allow the keepers,springs, seals to come out and replaced...
Usually the "guides" are worn out that allows oil through as well !! The guides are replaceable....

I did this a while ago on an ea. Give me a holler and I'll dig out the photos and explain it all. If you have an air compressor, patience and a few hours, it will cost you bugger all. The stem seals cost around $60 and the tools, other than an air compressor are easy to fabricate.

you just need a fitting to hook air into the plug hole usually a old plug with the top and guts knocked out and bronze a airline fitting to it. you can hire or buy a spring compressor to compress the valve springs with the head on. all fairly easy.
