DT100 Fork Oil Height?

Anybody have any idea of oil height for a 1978 DT100?

Nort sure how much but I would start at a given height, say 5" with springs out and forks collapsed, ride and see how it feels then you can add or subtract.

My book says:114-118cc, or 3.89-3.95 oz. with spring removed, and after pumping carefully to get the air bubbles out, measure one, make the other the same.

higher level = stiffer ride, lower level = softer ride. I wouldn't vary by much more than 15-20cc from listed, they aren't big forks, so have little volume.

Hope this helps.
