Re: Marzocchi fork service

Apart from the oil being filthy, I doubt these have ever been serviced, I have only found this little plastic washer is a little squashed and has a crack.
Anyone know if this matters or should I just put it back in??

Hey guys I have everything I need to do the service on these forks. I may need your help 😁 I got enduro seals as I could not find originals. Marzocchi specs 7.5wt oil, I have 7wt, so should be fine. This is the manual I dug out of the bowels of the internet http://my-sport.spb.ru/manual_1/2002-L_jrT...

Re: Power tool batteries...interchangeability ?

Now retired, I'm entirely on the Ryobi tool line. I got tired of three brands of shit in the toolbox. But I made the switch while still using them professionally.
