Hi Everyone.
 
I finally got around to taking my No4 MkI apart to degrease it.  I have it apart, except for 5 metal parts off the wood which appear to be held in by brass rivets.  The little yellow Handbook by Skinnerton does not mention them.
 
  1. front cap, hand guard
  2. front liner, hand guard
  3. rear liner, hand guard
  4. fore-end tie plate, stock
  5. fore-end cap, stock
 
do I need to remove these pieces?  If yes, how do I do so?  If a punch, which way to knock them?  Each rivet has a dimpled end.
 
I seem to recall a method to degrease the wood by placing in a black plastic bag and hanging in the hot sun.  Can anyone direct me to this post or elaborate?
 
Also what is the stock bolt wad?  I pretty sure my rifle did not have one.  Is this a worry or not?
 
Thanks
 
Kevin

Stock bolt wad would be the leather washer that sits on top of the stock bolt. Its there to stop the oiler rattling on the stock bolt.
If it is there you would have to remove it before you can undo the stock bolt.

No, you do not need to remove the clips from the handgaurds, leave the rivets alone unless loose.

thanks.  I am glad I don't have to fool with those rivets.
