I got my hydraulic lifters apart ... kinda

Here you can see what I got them down too.
And here you can see what I need to get them down to
But how do I get the springs out to get to the bad oil below. I can see them and compress them but they don't come out and I can't pull on them in anyway.

To get them back together, you will need a dull awl or similar tool that can press on the little ball, and a piece of hose a couple inches long that fits inside the main body of the lifter and can push down on the inner plunger thingy, while allowing the awl to freely move inside of it. And you need a flat screwdriver to apply downward pressure to the hose.
Now, once you have the spring and plunger/ball assembly thing inside the main body, which you have assembled under oil, set the lifter assembly in the oil, which should be at least an inch deep. To depress the inner lifter assembly, do as follows. Stick the awl through the hose first, then insert this into the lifter body. Use the awl to depress the little check ball so that oil can flow freely. Now use the screwdriver pushing on the hose to shove the entire assembly as far down into the lifter body as possible. Release the awl to shut off the check valve, then release the pressure on the hose. Without removing the lifter from the oil, put the other piece in. Then you can temporarily take it out to put on the retaining collar.
This probably sounds really weird, but it will make sense as you do it.
