Interim report.The method demonstrated in the video did not work for me, as I 
could not get them to separate.So, in best english fashion, I had to make-do 
and make a tool.The tool is a 2 ft long piece of 1x3 oak and holds the lifter 
in a simple clamp, open side down. A few whacks on the bench and the valve pops 
out.The wrists on the guy in the vid must have been strengthened by many short 
stroke oscillations.YMMVFred.
