hi bill,
         dismantle the assembly, inspect it visually, and assess the situation,if it's semi seized it needs stripping anyway. these parts are available from graham brooks or bamforths .
try pumping it full of oil from a grease gun to aid dismantling, warming it up may help also.
                                                                                         martin spurrell.
