    Drop off 2 internal rebound adjustment

    I posted this in shocks but I thought I would try you Freeriders.

    Just bought a used Drop off 2 and it came with a tool to adjust the rebound internally. The manual says to remove dust cap (looks like the right side leg) and insert tool to adjust. Well under the dust caps on both sides are schrader valves for air preload.

    How do I adjust the rebound? Do I have to remove the large nut cap that has the air valve?

    The fork is also noisy (oil dampening noise), I'm not familiar with Marzocchi forks, is this normal?

    I would like some info on oil changes and oil heights/amounts, if anyone couuld help me on that?

    Thanks
    I can fix it............... my dad has an awesome set of tools

    unscrew the left (if you are facing your bike) topcap and remove it completely, way down in the center of the spring is the hex shaped slot, turning it clockwise will add rebound damping (slowing the extension of your fork).

    you will have to remove both topcaps to compress your fork.

    the sound you are hearing is the famous marzocchi squish......

    I took off the right cap (as your sitting on the bike) put the adjusting rod down the tube(pointed end of hex rod, the other end had a slight bend in it, is that bend on the other end to help turn it?), but it wouldn't turn.
    It felt like it was in but as I turned it, it seemed to slip out (you could feel the adjusting rod push up slightly as it jumped out) of the hex nut end of the vavle.
    I tried turning both ways, but no luck. It never felt like it had a positive bite on the adjusting valve(like it never dropped in enough).

    Any suggestions, am I doing something wrong, is it just stuck?
