I took my fork with the leaky seal apart last night. All went well enough til I got to the place where the manual called for a special tool, I forget the precise name, think it was a 'damper holder'. When I looked down the fork tube I could see that I need something like a 2ft long pipe (goes around the damper rod) with 4 teeth to hold the damper in place whilst I spin the bottom component. I hope I don't need to buy the actual tool. A reasonable facsimile would suffice. How has anyone else resolved this issue? can I grind some grooves in a piece of 2" steel pipe and use that. Any good ideas? If I can't get the damper out, what's the best way to get all the dirty old fluid out? Oh yeah, I know I need a tool for installing the fork seals. Anyone got a better idea than a piece of PVC cut in half?
