Default 95 Tracker 16V Valve spring removal

Hello, I have a 95 Tracker 1.6 16V motor out of my tracker cleaning up some leaky gaskets and such. I'm trying to cheat a little and do the valve seal replacement without removing head or lifter arm shaft. I bought the Lisle 36200 tool for removing the keepers/springs and was successful on the first exhaust valve. The second exhaust valve is so close to the head casting that the tool won't work. Does anyone know of a tool better suited for this job? And yes, cam is out of the way. I think it will work if someone makes a smaller version of the Lisle tool. The magnets in the tool are great for recovering the valve keepers! Thanks in advance for any advice.

for the cost of a head gasket, pull the head, check it over, give the valves a lap and do the seals. you slip and drop a valve down the bore and you're going to have to take it off anyway.
