Pneumatic rivet squeezer for wing spar modification CH601XL-B

I am currently searching for a good yoke (for a 6000lbs pneumatic rivet squeezer) that allows me to squeeze the wing spar rivets for the CH601XL-B modification.

What yoke gap and reach are necessary? Does anybody know where I can buy such a yoke? Averytools only has smaller size yokes that won't fit/reach over the L-spar-angle.

cheaper alternative 4x rivet gun..... surplus 5# bucking bar (from yard store), I was going to use squeezer but too expensive and most referred here  are not really rated for the 3/16 rivets. It is very easy to set with gun either alone or with a helper.
