    Weather cleared up, I was able to clean up the arms "not too bad", and get them back into the machine. The stuck locking parts finally came out.

    Perhaps the most important lesson is how to remove a broken off fastener using the "tap size drill" then using a pick to remove the rest of the fastener.
