    Help Manitou Tower pro 140mm Damper oil lever

    All,
    Today, I serviced my Tower pro 140mm damper side. I read manual and say oil level is 87mm. I follow manual and did it, but now the damper does not lock. do anyone know what is exact oil level for tower pro 140mm and please share?
    Thank you for your help.

    Did you cycle the fork a few times to ensure that the rebound side is completely filled with oil, and then top up the oil to 87mm?

    Hi Aerius,
    Thank you for quick reply.
    here is what I did.
    I just measured 87ml oil and filled inside and Installed damper. do you know how much oil should I put fork for rebound before I fill 87ml. I bought fork from used. previous owner has too much oil and I never have full travel. now I have full travel, but no lock. I will do again.
    Thank you

    From the manual:
    Pour oil into the stanchion leg until it is about a quarter of the way up.
    Cover the hole in the stanchion with a rag and cycle the fork 7-10 times.
    Failure to do this will cause an incorrect oil height.
    After cycling the fork, continue filling the stanchion leg with oil to the oil height specified.
    Cycling = compressing and extending

    The compression/lockout won't work properly without the correct oil level.
