Description:

 I pulled these cores from a pair of struts on my now parted ‘69 02. They leak fluid so compression and rebound are not right. I just wanted to offer them up Incase someone wants to have some custom valved or rebuilt as spares. p/n- 86P-1519

I guess I just assumed they all were. How do I tell the difference?

 

 

 

Shit dude.  Beats me.  I remember something about screw together vs crimped...  Lemme look into it.  I was just going to take them apart to see what was required to rebuild them, but it'd be nice if they were actually rebuildable.

I have another set that im keeping that have a removable

gland. Unless there is something behind the seals

on the ones I’m selling they will likely have to be rebuilt by a shop. Notice that the main tube is shorted on the unit with the visible gland nut. Perhaps part of the rebuilding process is to crimp on a new end? I dunno. Your call

Yeah, I was hoping for something that would be a little easier to adjust- get those into some peoples hands so they can play with adjustable suspension, just to feel it.

 

Thanks Jake, Marshall.  I'll pass for the short term.  FWIW, I can probably rebuild these guys.
