To avoid the nasty surprises that can happen when working with the driving rod spring (as being discussed in this thread
http://www.1919a4.com/forums/showthread.php?t=460
I decided to whip up a tool.

I started with an old junk screwdriver that had demoted to opening paint cans.
I first ground the width of the blade down to match the diameter of the shank.



I then ground the tip of the blade to exactly match the groove in the driving rod.



Now I need a collar, I dug around in my duplicate sockets and found a 1/4" drive, 9/32" socket fits perfectly.



I tack welded it in place.



Finished



It ain't pretty, but it works great.
