$6 Fork Seal Driver

Postby sgtcall » Mon Apr 10, 2017 5:11 pm

So I made a seal driver for about $6.00. All you need is
2ft of 2in PVC pipe.
one 1 1/2 inch PVC bushing
one hose clamp big enough to go around the 2in pipe.

Cut the inside lip off the bushing so that it will fit over the slider. Then cut a 5/8 inch grove on both sides of the pipe about 4 inches long. Once you put the bushing on top of the seal, put the 2in pipe on the fork slider and tighten the hose clamp on the pipe so that it rests on top of the bushing. Then put the fork leg on a block of wood and hit the 2in pipe with a rubber mallet.

It will seat the seal easily with one or two good hits.
