Well ... I partially got it rebuilt. When I removed my adjuster bolt, the round piece that engages the bugger springs had some deep gouges in it so I am waiting on a new adjuster assembly. The bushings for the seat base (2x per side) were significantly undersized and keep sliding out. Not sure how the front one will stay in unless I drill and pin the arm? The bushings on the arm between the 2 rubber springs is way too thick . I ground the front surface off flush to get the cotter pin in. The rear I left in lieu of the washer that was there. There is a lot more free play now that before between the rubber springs and the bracket at the rear of the seat ... almost 1/4"! Overall not a very good experience! The mechanism appears to work and move freely. I'll be able to tell more once the adjuster arm comes in.
