I have relatives in the US who will be coming back to the UK in the middle of January, who I shall be using to bring me back a new shock or some spare parts to save on the shipping fees. Let me know if you would like to add some things to my order.
Thanks for the offer,ill keep it in mind
I think[Hope] mine is ok mechanically with only new seals needing to be fitted,the shaft looks unblemished without the wear band you sometimes see.The shaft also has quite a matt finish to it,im use to seeing coated pistons to be slick and shiny sort of so i cant judge its true condition.
At the moment there is no air in it and there wasnt when it arrived though you can hear the oil slurping through at i move it in and out,so perhaps it has just leaked out over the years or by the seller but because Ive no idea at what pressure these are meant to be run at so i cant pump it in to see if it holds
Can you help out there? i weigh around about 12stone.
I'll have to start a thread on this,but theres one up already,dont want to spoil people just yet
