T4/TX mount repair

I have a minor goal of collecting a set of the Vivitar close focus lenses. I just received a 75-260 from shopgoodwill and find the adapter is jammed in the lens and the lock lever is broken off. Possibly related, the aperture blades seem to be stuck but of course that could be due to the adapter issue.
Does anyone have any words of wisdom on disassembling/repairing the TX mount?
