Do you just put them in a big vise with wood on either
side and compress, figuring a way to push on the
inside of the bootom of the lifter?

  That's sort of what you have to do to install a timing chain tensioner on a 

911 engine.  Problem is that you have to hold it comressed.  No way to 
do that on a lifter.  I just drop them in and assemble.  Cranking the 
engine for starting, or using pre pressurization of the oil system should 
take care of it.
