i want to built my own fork seal driver . what size of pvc do i need to get?
PVC? Are you serious? The forks are 46mm.
ive heard of pvc being used but never seen it done. Good luck with it.
I successfully made a PVC pipe driver LOL! But everything I make is "jimmy rigged" I just couldnt justify spending $60 for a tool I would use 2-3x a year! It only cost me about $2 for an 8ft pipe (and I still have 7.9 ft of it LOL) Here is the link with pics http://motoman393.forreal.net/tech/driver.html Good Luck,
I like PVC the best but I've also used the old seal, hack sawed through it, sliped it around the leg and used it to push the new seal into place.
I used a 1-1/2" coupling...schedule 40 pvc. I split it in half, and just tapped it down with a rubber hammer. Worked great.
Now ya say somthing, Geez did I screw up,
I used a 4 tone metel press at my friends Mchine shop. Ths seal went in real good and quick, but Now I only have 3" Travel
Motomans CHEEPO tool works great
