Exhaust Valve Replacement

Hi all - unfortunately had a tappet adjusting locknut back out, which led to the tappet falling out and the rocker arm to cause quite a bit of damage to the top of the exhaust valve (on the shoulder that holds the cotters in).

I have replacement parts and would like to replace the valve as I'm worried it will fatigue out over time.

Is it possible to remove the rear cylinder head without dropping the entire engine and all the pain that comes with that? Any tricks I should know outside of the FSM for a valve replacement? Thanks in advance.
