Wj Hydrualic Valve Lifter Remover tool HELP!!!

Can someone explain to me how the lifter remover tool works? I got one from autozone and read the instructions on the back and I'm just not getting it. It doesn't seem to do anything. I have a telescopic magnet but it's just not strong enough. HELP!! I just want to get these out and put my engine back together!!!

Get a stronger magnet. I got one from the local parts store that has something like a 14lb pull and it worked fine to pull the lifters on the 4.0 I rebuilt for my FIL's '94 XJ.

Best bet is a stronger magnet. I don't know what the one from autozone looks like. I know of two different types. One is a hook type. Self explanatory. The other has a few springy fingers on it. The ends slip inside and under the inner ridge where the cup retention spring sits.

Magnet or a right angle seal pick works well.
