Come on down and take look. I just did the very same thing a few weeks ago.
The lifting mechanism is held on it's bracket by two pins in the lower section of the barrel, and a horseshoe clamp up top. You need to just spread the lower bracket a bit, and it should pop right out.
The attachment to the actual lid is by rivets. Drill out teh old ones, and use new pop rivets and sealer for the new ones.
