    More then likely, the trip mechanism is caked up with greasy dirt inside. Pull the left wheel, then disassemble, clean, and regrease. Unless T-totally abused, those things are pretty well bullet proof.

    Grease attracts the dirt over the years, and builds up inside, not allowing the dogs to work, or drop in the catches. 99.9% of the time, an easy fix.

    That should be a plan.
