1. The V spring
2. The bolt
3. The link (and roller if it has one)
4. The top lever (remove small retaining screw in side of frame tang)
5. The top lever cam.

Done.

I use a small needle nose vice grip to remove the top lever (V) spring.

Thanks Brian. Now if I can get the boogered or staked screw out if the cam. Why this one- the one that is least supported. Even the little toplever retaining screw came out easily after some Kroil. Oh well time ,kroil and maybe a reshaped slot. Harry ,wish I knew where to get one of those needle nose vices-mostly see antique ones in muzzleloading articles.

They are not staked.
Sometimes they are just plain stuck. At times needing to be drilled out.

This one has been worked on in the past .The trigger return spring is wire not the flat spring version .That screw has a thoroughly wallowed out slot- evidence of a past battle.The slot can be recut so I can obtain a purchace on the screw and get it out hopefully. Harry ,I apoligise,you are using a modern vice grip,I had in mind an older end gripping minature vice.Good tip.Thank you,Hugh

Parker did switch to a wire trigger return spring at a point during production.

Did the hammerless guns ever have the flat trigger return spring?The only one I saw in my limited experience was in a 1878 lifter.

Yes. They did. Then a wire spring was used later on. I am not completely sure as to when the changeover was done.
