I don't know about the Henry, but on a Marlin, it's just one bolt to remove and then reinsert.

A technical note for anyone who may find this thread in the future:
Difficulty is a two (on a scale of 1-5, 5 being the most complicated work only to be done by those trained and probably requiring specialty tools)
Your new lever will come with un-detailed directions
Tools you'll need-
1. Craftsman 1/4 in flathead screwdriver
2. a hex wrench (for pushing the the pins out. I actually used a .22 snap cap on the locking bar )
These henry's are not complicated machines (as some of the best and most reliable machines go), they have relatively loose tolerances, HOWEVER, there is a little slot that the top end of the lever assembly slides into, if you can't get the snap cap to feed during a function test, you should check that you installed the end into the right slot.
I recommend cycling the action a couple times while looking into the guts of it BEFORE disassembly. Pay particular attention to the locking bar. If you're really careful you may take a little video on your digital camera.
And finally, before you button your project up, make sure everything has a new light coat of CLP.

I have completed the first five steps to install my Henry 22 magnum Golden Boy rifle large loop lever, but step 6 has me stumped. Where is bolt 35 located?
I am new to the forum and I would really appreciate help from Russ or anyone? Finally, Got It Installed. That page of instructions needed more details.
It came to me that the #35 bolt was the main rifle black bolt so I removed it. I used a nail punch to puch out those two pins. If you are planning on doing
the lever swap, notice the position of the Locking Bar before you remove it. Then when you push the pin out notice the round extension on the front of the
Locking Bar; the round extension goes under the lever extension. Of course, you have those two springs that go beneath the Locking Bar.
Take a look at my attachment for directions.
