I responded to your PM, but I figured it might be useful here too.

I have had good luck using a gasket pick, miniature pliars, and the stock cocking knob from the marker. The drilled center of the cocking knob is perfectly designed to fit over the valve stem, and onto the brass valve seat. You can then compress the valve seat down into the valve body with one hand, and attempt to use the gasket pick to catch a leading edge of the retaining clip.

Also! The back piece of the marker is convenient to use as a base to work on, place it rounded side down on your workspace, and place the bottom of the valve so the valve stem goes into the hole for the hammer spring. Its a bit wobbly, but you now have the valve body seated nice and flat without risking damage to the front valve stem.

If you can manage to pry a bit of the clip inwards, enough that you could get them with mini pliers, slowly let up on the valve seat so it pinches the retaining clip into place. Then swap out the gasket pick for pliers and snag the end you loosened, compressed the valve seat back down and carefully unwind the clip from the body.

What you should find inside:

I used my lathe to provide a third hand. Like RuleOfSines said, you need to take the pressure off the snap ring so you can get it out with a pick.

Edit: also the valve is the same as a prolite. The fa is a prolite with a fancy hydraulic assembly.
