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.

> upwards on the fulcrum pin. There is no wear in the pin that I can see.
> I have removed it from the car and am wondering if I will get away with
