I am in the process of refettling my 1970 TR6, I have used ATF oil in the front forks, My question is, is this oil to light it seems to be leaking from the bottom of the stanchion and not from the drain plug. The A65 also has this problem. Any suggestions Victor 1970 TR^ 1970 A65 Firebird 1981 XS650 Yamaha
in the bottom of the fork legs, there is a tall fitting 3" maybe, can`t think of the name of it. i just rebuilt 2mos ago,my 70 bonne forks, filled them up. came out the next morning one leg is leaking, Theres a small nut in the dead center, of the bottom of the fork leg. mine wasn`t tightened up enough. tightened it up, no leaks ps. you have to take wheel, and bottom axel cap off to see it, and it takes a super thin wall socket to tighten it up. plus you have to take the bottom, leg off [easier] and use a long and a deep well, extension to hold the tall bolt piece, thing down in the tube.
