Can someone with a modest amount of mechanical ability and a set of Gunsmith Screwdrivers & Puches take apart a Marlin 336 (.35 Remington 1950, 336A model) to clean it properly?
Is there any sticky on this site about doing this?
If not what would be the 1st step, 2nd, 3rd.
Anything to watch out for? Any traps?
Yes, and yes.
Reference Library, Gunsmithing, How To Disassemble & Clean. This thread is a good one:
Generally you can find whatever you need on this site by doing a search. That's what the search feature is for.
Good luck, if I can do it (and I can), so can you!

338 MX...It's not your father's lever action!
For proper cleaning, all you need is one flat blade screwdriver properly sized to remove the lever screw. Or, you can buy a replacement screw with a knurled head that eliminates the need for a screwdriver - just use your fingers. For total disassembly, you may need one or two more screwdrivers, but only because I strive for the perfect fit every time I turn a screw. Buggered screws are just so unattractive, and amateurish-looking to boot.

The step-by-step breakdown instructions from the link you posted are a great resource. A big THANKS to both you & "Levergun" !

America was founded by tough hell raisers, rugged American citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer and moonshine, and smuggled weapons; it will be saved only by those who do the same today.
