ok...now my manuals do not show or describe how to disassemble the forks on a 76 gt250A...forks before are covered but not these....looked for some utube videos but found nothing specific...anyone have any detailed instructions for this model year fork disassembly?...trying to restore\recondition the forks....probably never done before..

any help is always appreciated..i ask so i don't make a balls up of the work.. :oops:

thanks

TJ

I have one fork totally disassembled but cannot see where parts 16 and 17 are.....I have the impression they are supposed to be inside the inner tube..am I wrong?..or are these parts the parts that slide inside top of the outer tube?

if they are how does one remove the oil seal from the top part of the outer tube?..I'm totlly confused right now...HELP! :(

Pictures of what you are working with might help someone to identify the issue.

hi

how would you recommend I install the oils seals for my forks deep enough and not do any damage to them? I noticed they must go in about 5-7 mm beyond the rim to sit properly...I can get them flush but need to go further.......

thanks

TJ

I use a piece of ABS pipe, but you can buy actual seal drivers this as well. 8)

ABS pipe!...how come my brain doesn't work like that? :shock: ....what a good idea...I think subconsciously I prevent my brain from working because of the fear of damaging something......abs pipe is cheaper than those seal drivers....good advice..will look for the pipe..
