Problem removing Briggs & Stratton valve spring retainer

Here is a picture of the valve spring retainer that I can't figure out how to remove. (Please ignore my poor mans spring compressor)



Any Suggestions? What am I missing here?

Spring compressor is spring compressor

The retainer is just stuck to the valve stem, give it a tap or two spray (carb cleaner should work well) or whatever and get it to spin on the stem, work it down toward the spring then align the slot and push to the opening.

Your there just fiddle a bit
