It's all in that thread I gave you.

I had the lever taken off with just the fork remaining on the group. I was able to compress to the point I took a small rod with a similar diameter to the fork pin and with a little mallet knocked out the fork pin without much trouble.

Ok thanks.
Ya read through it, was just trying to mentally visualize what order you take the pins off as you compress the spring on the jig.
I guess the small pin gets moved up as the spring is compressed so it clears the jig.
Thanks
Waiting now for the spring to come..

Yes.

As you compress the spring the pin raises out of the housing such that you can take the rod and place against the face of it from the side and tap it out.

Ok thanks!

Another thread described a similair jig, but instead of wood at the top, he used the two holes in the plate (with washers to avoid scuffing it).
The two holes that you use to screw the plate back in to the grouphead.. That would maybe give more clearance, but yours looks like no problem either.

Can I ask which specific tool you used to remove the circlip (seeger clip).
My snap ring pliers don't fit in those very tiny holes...
Thanks!

I used wooden chop sticks and pushed the clips out on one side
