Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the oil seal washer dimensions are, and what material. This is the washer between the bush and the seal. I am about to assemble and discovered that I don't have any... I might be able to whip one up.

Many thanks.

Phil

(...and if you are wondering where the old washers are... the forks didn't have any.)

Dumb question....there must be a dozen seals on the bike...which one? If people have an idea what they are supposed to answer...someone might just have the info...if you really mean the forks, as I just re-read your WHOLE question...don't think there were any in mine, or ever have been....the fiber seals at the bottom don't have any and the oil seal at the top of the slide just gets pushed into the fork slide by the threaded cap...unless I'm wrong...check the parts list, it's been a couple years since I had mine apart. Bought a set of the "lifetime guarenteed " seals in about 1980 or so, and since I use Belray fork oil with "Seal swell"...they still don't leak, even after pulling them out a few times to replace oil and remove sludge.
Wait a minute...the parts list shows a washer under the oil seal, and on top of the top bush...but isn't that a paper washer? Someone help us on this.....
