Do you have a few pics. The swell plate may be nailed on. If the conchos are too tight, you need a pair of off-set pliers and wrap each jaw a few times with masking or painter's tape, electrical tape, and very carefully take hold of the concho with the pliers flat against the saddle. Do this very carefully and turn the concho. Sometimes it's just a matter of getting it started and other times not. Be careful the pliers don't slip or you may gouge the leather. That is why you tape the plier claws well.
