Has anybody any experience of fitting new fork seals ,will they go over the fixed bronze bushes on the fork leg?or do you need a special tool.

special tool

Post  piston 197 on Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:45 pm

I have a couple of the tool required which were made by a club member, they are a tapered nylon bung which locates in the bottom of the fork and allows you to slide the seal over the bottom bush, over the top one is easy
They are 8 each inc post payable to FBOC , p.m me if you want one and i will send you address details

They do go over but you need to work them a little. I removed the spring and refitted when in place. You can make a funnel from some thin plastic if needed.

This guide might be helpful. JH if bushes are needed are they a part which yourself or the club can supply?

No point either myself or the club supplying as they are readily available from both Villiers Services and AMC classic spares ( Matchless G2 seals same thing ) as well as other sources
