installing o-ring in dust excluder?

Any suggestions for installing o-rings that hold the top bushing in? I am quite sure they are the right size as they match what I took out, I cant figure out how to ge them in.

The other question I have is does the thicker end of the plastic fork sleeve go up?

I have searched the manuals and neither is mentioned.

I'd fit the O-ring in the dust excluder first,then push the bush in.
The thicker end of the damper sleeve goes to the bottom.It should be a firm fit in the slider,and a sliding fit on the stanchion.

Mr. Pete. I think you have that backwards. Shouldn't be a firm fit on the stanchion and a sliding fit in the slider?

Senior moment?

The tube should remain seated against the top fork bush,and not move in the slider.Firm fit in the slider is right.

Mr. Pete, thanks for the insight. I will try inserting o-ring first and then top bushing, perhaps ill round the top edges of the bushing before I try.

On the plastic damper sleeve, I get the thicker part goes to the bottom. I'm a newbie so a bit unclear on terms that I cant find in parts book. When you say slider do you mean the "bottom member"?

Thanks!

You got it;the slider is the outer and bottom part.It clamps to the axle and slides up and down on the stanchion.
A little radius on the bush shoulder is a good idea.
