Old Riverside MBK telescopic forks

My old forks (circa 1959, av88, rebadged as Ward's Riverside) are full of about 11 different kinds of grease, cow shit and mud. All 'vintage'. Anybody ever come up with a shade tree mechanic equivalent to the "bushing extractor" in the repair manual (pic)?

Not looking to buy a new tool. I tried using the recoil spring off an old weed whip coupled alongside a 2 foot 3/8 socket extension and also alongside an old lady's foot fulcrum bar. It grabs but they won't come free. Looks like there's roundabout 6 different pieces inside the fork (other pic).

Anybody ever bother going to this level of detail in a rebuild? Just douche it out and move forward?

Digging any response I can get, thanks!
