Re: Disassembly problem
No, put the drift punch in the hole where the screw was under the top lever and tap down on it. That should loosen the trigger plate assembly and let you access the top lever spring.
Taking the top lever off, you need to remove the screw in the coupler which most cases are peened over. Then you can slide the top lever out from the coupler. I would not take the top lever out because reinstalling the coupler can be tricky.
