82 fork reassemble

Post by rabbit58 » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:52 pm

I took my forks off and disassembled them. something came up and it has been a while. now I am putting back togeather. I can't remember which way the lower ring below the seal goes, it is domed shaped, does the dome go up or down. I tried up and couldn't get it to go. I have read all the posts on seal replacement and they have been the greatest!! Thanks all!!

As I remember,the dome goes up.you want the outside lip in contact with the seal.if the inner raised part is up it contacts the wiper of the seal(bad).the raised lip contacts the seal support ring.
I use a split PVC coupler to tap the slide in place,drop the ring and then again to seat the seal.
