Heres the deal, deer season starts 11 Nov. and is only for one week (firearm season that is). I want to use my Savage #4 MK1*. Of course it's still covered with cosmoline. Cleaning and zeroing will not be a problem. Except for cleaning the bolt. How do I properly disassemble the bolt for a complete cleaning?

All you should really need to do is remove the bolt head and make sure it's clean.  You will need a special tool to remove the actual firing pin.  All I have ever done is remove the bolt head and use long Q-tips and gun cleaner.  I spray cleaner down the bolt and use q-tips to remove any cosmolene. I wouldn't remove anything unless you have the proper tools.
 
HTH,

Thank you Eric. You wouldn't happen to have the plans to make the tool to remove the firing pin or know where I can purchase the tool would you?

G'day Mate welcome to the twilight zone!!!!! The surest way to clean your Bolt without getting into a world of despare ,is simply to remove the Bolt Head & give it a good spray with Gun scrubber, or some other gunolvent under preasure ! Then use a spray gun oil (or if your like me WD40) hang it & let it dry & reassemble !

I always use petrol with a dash of engine oil to degrease things.
The petrol will evaporate leaving the oil behind.

    (He sniffs the petrol !!!!!!!Shocked)  2 stroke Fuel is the go for that sort of cleaning I used to use it on my Browning Buckmark ! I was'nt going to mention it as I thought I'd get howed down ! Many years ago in the army I had the mis fortune to be issued with a F1 sub machine gun (they took our owens off of us Cry) I used to disasemble it & drop the barrel & action in the Petrol Tank of the Old International 4x4 Trucks we drove to clean it !

Did you drive those Internationals, Dave, or just use them to intimidate the tanks?

Hey Ed, don't you go making fun of those binders.  At least not while I'm present.  They made rifles too you know.
I've seen the future and I don't like it.

No, I'm a fan! Those trucks got lousy gas mileage, but they were darn near indestructible! My brother had a 63 4x4 carry-all. Some Porsche or other dainty car would try to pull out in front of me and I'd just grin and keep going. They always changed their mind!

Thanks for the help and advice folks. But with me being a bike mechanic-well I like disassembling things to see how they work. I don't do to bad putting them back together. Generally only have one or two pieces left when I'm finishedWinkLOL.
By the way, I got the bolt apart, cleaned and reassembled. Thanks again
