Fox Fit forks help

Post subject:  Fox Fit forks help

I bought a set recently that are mint but in parts. Initial reason for buying was spares for a set I have but they appear to be different so plan b is to build them and use them on another build.

A couple of questions:

Assembly. I'm fairly adept at working with rock shox and older fox, but never played with any fit forks (my other set i bought new and they've done about 4 miles on a garage queen so never had to do anything other than swap the lowers over as i needed v brake mounts). Aside from missing seals which i have, how do they go back together? Fit damper is fitted and appears to be working, but as they are not assembled, I should probably do some maintenance, but not sure how. Anyone got experience or can point me at a good resource?

Air side. This is not fitted, so need to pop it all back together. Again, anything I should be doing?

Lastly, I'm keen to understand the differences between the forks. My existing set has dials very similar to the old rlc type fork, with a black fit dial inside the lockout lever, and a compression dial below it all, and a red rebound dial at the bottom of the leg. The newer fork has the lower rebound dial (at least I assume it is), but the upper disk is simply a lever. I'm not sure what it does, assume its ctd but never had one like this so just want to know what it does functionally.

Cheers all.

Pics of the two dial types added. The rlc style ones dont say FIT but they are a fit damper as I bought them new.

Any ideas?
