    Used Fox Float RL 100, little compression dampening after rebuild.

    I bought a used Float, great price because it needed a rebuild (leaking seals and little air pressure). It's an early model, it has V brake posts and tab disk-mounts. Serial # 0057720 if that helps.

    There is very little dampening after the rebuild, and the lockout does not seem to make any difference when locked. With sag set properly (80psi, 170lb rider), I can get 3/4 travel just dropping off of a curb. Adjusting the rebound does have an effect, but it's hard to tell with little compression dampening.

    I'm 99% certain I got all the shims/springs etc back together in the right order. It doesn't match any of the photos of cartridges on the fox site so I can't verify. Does anyone know where I can find an exploded diagram so I can ensure it's right, and/or instructions for disassembling the top cap, as it may be the lockout's blown out.

    Any insights anyone may have are greatly appreciated.
