Re: Removing a stuck locking bolt
Daniel, if you could move the top lever so that the coupler attached to the top lever shaft is parallel to the shaft of the top lever, support the topside of the coupler and then turn the receiver upside down and try tapping out the top lever.
Usually the screw that holds the coupler to the top lever is peened and hard to remove. Sometimes part of the slot fractures and breaks off.
Good luck and let us know how you make out.
