‘71 K3 (self inflicted) shock problem

Hey there guys- my first post although if overcome some issues reviewing earlier posts.

Rebuilding a ‘71 350 K3. Learning by making mistakes. Today while installing fork seals (which I achieved) I thought disassembly was achieved by removing the small Phillips head screw at the underside of the fork where it sits on the axel.
I had to use an impact driver to lose that screw - seems that was a stupid idea- the screw broke free but now turns freely without coming out.

I don’t know what I’ve damaged but I can tell that this fail will cause a leak - what is the solution… is there further disassembly still required or should I have that place where the screw is welded over; I’m at a loss - can anyone help?

that screw doesn't show on the exploded parts - are you able to disassemble further?
Last vid is K4/K5 ... not the same as K3.
ok thanks
you should be able to remove all but the inner dampening tube then use a wood dowel to hold it while you either remove all the way or tighten it back up
