This is a 220 chickapee mass. and it wont lock closed , it seems the top lever has no resistance............... Ok I got it apart and looks like I need a top lever screw and a firing pin and she will be in good shape to fire it. Anyone have any parts ?

Snowpro, please see Summitww's comments in this forum.  He says he has all parts for sale.  Thanks for looking at my site.

it seems that you are missing the safety push rod spring, it looks like a funny shaped wire.  it is #34 on the schematic.  the safety push rod sits atop of the firing pin and provides spring tension to the top lever.

Ok I put it together and the top lever is too tight to move the heavy spring , I pulled the pin and it seemed to be more tension on the top lever. What could be wrong with this setup ? Anyone Have an assembly diagram ? Spring seems to be way too long an not enough compression travel.

Snowpro, I hope someone can chime in with the needed advice.  I have no idea what the problem may be.  Good luck.

Thanks Garnett , I put everything together as found and it seems after looking closely the top snap arm is not making contact with the firing pin assembly when turned , so I will look into if I am missing another part or the original parts are worn or bent ?

All I can say about this now, is what I read on an internet forum sometime ago.  "When  putting parts back in the action, if a wire seems to be bent....DO NOT STRAIGHTEN IT!  It is that shape for a purpose."  Did you by any chance straighten something you thought was bent?  We are very fortunate here in Selma, Alabama.  We have 3 expert machinist gunsmiths.  I carry all my problems to them.  Good luck.

I wish I could be of more help.  Try contacting my friend Joe Summit in California.  He has posted on this site.  Maybe he could offer a suggestion as he works on his guns.  Again, good luck.
