Looks like you have all the original bits and some to spare. The main question is at the dampers working? At least one is in bits by the looks of it.

Newcastle is a bit of a stretch for me to help build them I'm afraid.

Er, Englund carts are excellent, and IMO much better than the original internals. Why do you want to swap them?

Get a shock pump and you're set.

You need one damping cartridge and one dummy leg. You have pretty much two of everything in those pictures bar the springs.

Those instructions above cover rebuilding and bleeding the damper.

Are these for you're stumpjumper?
