I just recently rebuilt the Talas assembly in my 2008 Fox 36 since the adjustments weren't working (maintained 160mm travel regardless of adjuster position).
Anyway, I snapped a couple of pictures to help explain the problem. Basically, the adjuster knob doesn't stop on the 'stop' like it did before. I feel like I may have assembled it wrong or am missing a part. However, I do know the adjustments are working now
Here's the issue in photos:
160mm travel setting - no issues:
100mm travel setting - works but the knob has raised up significantly:
Uh oh, the knob keeps turning! The stopper on the adjuster now goes over the stopper on the main assembly.
Side angle to show how far the Talas assembly has raised up which will let in all sorts of crap:
I can continue turning the knob until the air is released from the assembly. That would obviously suck if it inadvertently happened in the middle of the ride.
Any ideas about what's going on here?
