Default Marlin Lever action

Assembly
I took my JC Higgins model 45 30/30 apart and parts just started falling out
Any local guys who know Marlin lever actions pretty well who can reassemble it? Itís almost identical to Marlin 336 30/30

Probably the ejector. it just sits in the side of the receiver.

I put it back together... BUT, the lever gets stuck closed. I have to open the pivot screw every time to get it out and the it gets stuck again as soon as I close it... what gives?

Have you looked up a youtube to make sure you got it back together rite?
If i recall correctly there is 2 pieces to it. Get both fit right?
I can't imagine getting it in wrong and it even closing, but.......
Lots of video on installing the ejector.

it was actually REALLY easy to put back together. I just panicked because a couple of parts fell out without me seeing where they came from. Once I looked at the manual online and a couple of YouTube Videos I put it together pretty quick. I actually did it again 3 more times after that to make sure I got it down. Kudos to Marlin, for such an old gun they made it simple.
