Try tapping on the cylinders to rock them in their bores to loosen them. Also 
try to rotate the cylinders using a large "jar lid" remover sold at household 
type stores.

On the valves, lightly tap on the spring retainers with a hammer with the 
spring compressor applying pressure. This will break them free.
