Manitou sherman Slider + rebuild info needed, thanks
Hey guys, i came across an awesome 05 sherman slider + deal from local.
it has the rebound knob broken off. the guy said its functional but needs rebuild.
i did search a little. since its an old fork nothing useful really came up
is there any write ups thats hiding somewhere on the internet? or write ups on other forks thats similar internally?
ive never rebuilt a fork before. what's normally needed to replace in the rebuild?
any info would be much appreciated !

manitou has guides. they are pretty easy to work on. just did a marzocchi 55 tst2 the other day. was kind of a head ache
i do have the manual from manitou. it doesnt really tell me anything tho.
just speaking general, what parts do you replace when doing a full service ?
You replace oil and you replace the external seals if they need it. It's an SPV fork, so you will probably need to open the SPV valve and re-grease it.
Where did this idea that parts need replaced come from?
thanks for the input.
