Thanks for the wonderful replies! I did get the hammer off the tumbler finally by using a punch as described and setting the lockplate on a large enough socket to accomodate the tumbler. I then carefully cleaned the corrosion off the tumbler and hammer fittings. I also acquired a replacement hammer screw which is perfect.
