So I received and installed new extractor plunger and extractor today. Springs looked identical, so I am not sure which I put back in.
Extractor plungers, new on left:
I lack the experience to tell for a fact that the old extractor and plunger are worn/damaged enough to cause issues, but they sure don't look healthy to me...we'll see this weekend.
Please let me know if you have thoughts on the condition of these components from the photos.
