Haven't made a ton of progress, other than borrowing the smack-it tool from Jacket. Have one fork completely torn down, the other still sitting there in tact- kinda keeping it there as a standard in case I forget the order of things. Will have a go tomorrow night hopefully- tonight's booked with baseball & real work.
I'm going to follow 60wag's suggestion and put ATF in the forks- apparently that's the magic fluid, and is readily available..
