Savage Model 7 (JC Higgins 101.16) Extractor Removal

Hey fellas,
I am working on my dads old 22 due to failure to extract spent cases. The extractor hook is boogered up pretty good so I looked for parts and found them available.

I removed the left side extractor by pulling the plunger down and levering the extractor out of its pocket. (I used a pointy brass cleaning jag)

The right side is kicking my arse though. I can't seem to get any purchase on the top edge of the plunger to begin pulling it down.

Anyone have experience with this operation?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Got it!

OK - I got it out. The tension on the plunger was noticeably different than the LH side and it appears that a spring other than factory had been installed at some point. I think this caused the difficult extraction.

Thanks!
