TRAC Orifices

Does anyone know how to get the orifices out of the housing to check for plugging? I removed the pin and have tried 140 PSI with an unrestricted air nozzle, but they won't come out. There's not enough of the dial to pry with tiny screwdrivers, it just wants to flake off the chrome. I did find a small metal chip in the hole where the pin came out. I also notice that left fork has the "1" facing the mounting surface of the fork and the other side has the "4" facing the mounting surface. I checked the original forks and they are the same, so I guess this is normal?

I was able to get them out by grabbing the adjustment screw with a pair of needle nose pliers. Chewed it up, but at least it's out. Found one metal chip in both sides. Discovered that the number dial is pinned, so you can't put it together incorrectly. Now have to order some boots for the pivot pin. One thing after another when you buy an old bike. Just when you think you fixed all the problems!

yes the adjuster can be a bit of a pain to get out. while you have them apart think about getting everything you can. It doesn't cost that much and you will have forks like new when done. I just did mine and the only part you cant get is the large sealing washer that goes between fork tube and valve body. I had to search ebay and get NOS from two different places. Here is my rebuild. Good luck with yours. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=26949
