Remington Model 33 - bolt needs a good cleaning

I have a Remington Model 33 single shot 22 bolt action. It has no serial number, so I think that means it was made in the first 2 years of the 3 years of manufacture (1932 and 1933). Every now and then it'll fail to fire. Puts a dent in the primer rim, but apparently not a good enough dent. I can then fire the round in another single shot I have. From what I've read on the internet, the problem could be the firing pin spring or the firing pin itself, but might just be from the accumulated gunk in the bolt from 80 years of shooting. So I'd like to clean the bolt, which means disassembly. The disassembly isn't the part that worries me. I worry about reassembly. Anybody here ever take a Mod 33 bolt apart (and put it back together successfully) and that can give me words of encouragement?

I could take it to a gunsmith, but that'd cost more than I paid for the old rifle. And by the way, that old rifle is quite a shooter. Amazing.
