Ok, the lever comes out easy enough. But how do I change that spring thing? It looks like I need to tap out that pin. I tried to use a small nail but it didn't work.
Any ideas?

spring thing ? You mean the finger lever plunger thats on the lever its self? Never had to remove mine but a good set of drive pin punches are worth their weight in gold in these situations.

Every thing comes out the ejection port side of a Marlin

TO remove the lever spring, have some one push in on the plunger while you tap out the pin.
Go to Ace Hardware and purchase the #1 spring on their spring display board. Cut it to the same length as the factory pin and you will be home free. Spring should cost less than a buck.

Right. The plunger has a little "shelf" in it that rides on the pin. You need to take tension off the pin to be able to drive it out easily. Unless you have 3 or 4 hands, it's best to get someone to help you, or use a C-clamp. Get a punch the right size, because a nail will definitely booger up the end, and then the pin will be useless. Don't ask me how I know this. ;D

Marlin Glued guns are famous.

When hunting, one shot sticks it right there.
