For my new 336.
I am new to lever actions, and was wondering if there were any good videos on this subject that someone could provide links to.
There are some on you tube, but I would prefer not to watch them all and see which are good or bad - if anyone already knows, that would be appreciated as to which ones are the good ones.
First off Welcome to MarlinOwners, you'll find a lot of solid info in this place, NO QUESTION IS EVER STUPID, feel free to ask away! Take yourself down the index page and you'll find the Gunsmithing Forum, in there you'll find exactly what your after, look for a link pertaining to the 1895 disassembly. The other option is to find a post by Eli Chaps and click on one of the links in his signature line. Mr fixit

2nd amendment, welcome to MO. I am a new owner of a 336 as well and I've found that the instructions in the user manual are fine for the taking down and cleaning of the 336. It's a very simple process, actually. I haven't gotten around to fully disassembling yet, but if you're just looking to clean your rifle, simply removing the lever, bolt, and ejector is all you need to do. Welcome to the world of Marlinitis and have fun.
For 336 specific info, here is a u-tube link for field stripping as recommended by Marlin for basic cleaning. This guy does a good job with a slow, deliberate presentation:
This same presenter has a video for complete disassembly of the 336 for cleaning and simple polishing of the action. Good luck. Make sure you have good quality screwdrivers to avoid "bubba" scratches and buggered up screw heads.

I dont have but i should try to search it.
This is a great video for taking down. Is anyone aware of a similar on how to put back together?
Welcome to Marlin Owners. SwampDude gave you a real good video. I also agree with mr fixit's advice. Try looking in the Gunsmithing section of the forum - lots of good info.
