It ia a Rube Goldberg type of mechanism Looking at it ,the 1910 modification was a real improvement.

Found a You Tube video (Forest Dermid) detailing reassembly of Parker hammerless.Cannot make out the procedure for replacing the toplever.

I have done this with great success and left no evidence of tampering:

Actually the barrels are on face. I think the area where the top lever engages the lever shaft is worn.

So is the top lever fully to the left and you can swing the barrels up and down vertically ?

This is the area that first the 1905 bolt wear plate then the 1910 stepped sides bolt wear plate addressed.

Barrels stay closed but with reduced bolt engagement due to bolt not being pressed foward due to wear at top lever -shaft contact point.With action off and floorplate out I can push bolt foward and backward about 0.25 "

Default Disassembly

My problem is what order is this top lever v spring locking bolt assembly taken apart ? In the You Tube reassembly video(Forest Dermid) ,the v spring is replaced first,then the other parts of the top lever assembly are placed.In trying to disassemble by removing the retaining screw first ,I am unable to lift the top lever.What is the trick?.

Mine is the old model with the multiple part toplever assembly.I reviewed the video on Youtube (by Forest Dermid)and he used a screwdriver as a wedge to compress the spring and then insert the toplever.The video did not show all this but appears somewhat difficult.
