Thanks very much, Randall -
I have tried honing the bore from the circlip groove out, the lubricating
oil thing and pressing in/letting the piston spring out. So far, no joy,
but maybe I haven't given it enough tries. It sounds like there is no
mechanical reason why the valve assembly will not come out. If that is so,
then I'll keep trying.

Sometimes, rapping the cylinder on the (wooden) bench will coax it out.
Another trick that sometimes works is to spray some lubricant (penetrating
oil or whatever) into the area, then use a rod to press the piston all the
way in and let it spring out.
I've also on occasion resorted to using a hone to clean and slightly open
the bore at the end, around the circlip groove.
