Yes I had a swinger 4 way for a while. It works in a similar way, air pressure on the end of the piggy back changes the compression damping, the volume adjuster around the SPV air valve changes how progressive the shock is and how hard it is to bottom out.tyvm i will definetely take a look at that.
another question if you dont mind relating to similar shocks. do you know anything about the rear shock that came along side it. what i have is supposed to be called the manitou swinger 4-way air spv i think
Here is a 2003 Sherman service guide: http://www.manitoumtb.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/2003-Sherman-Owners-Manual.pdfOh ok ty for that. I plan on servicing my Sherman. Do you have a guide that explains it fully step by step?
They are an extremely simple fork to work on. Changing bushing oil and seals can be a half hour job if you're experienced.Ok sounds really confusing but I'm going to see if I can do it. I mainly wanted to change the oil and the seals and maybe I would like to remove the spv. You called it devolve right? In your opinion. Is it better to remove it or leave it in?
Yes the Enduro 32mm seal kit will fit. The original manitou seals are still current, part number 85-5293. Both available online.are these the seals for it? Enduro Seal /Wiper Kit For Manitou Forks > Components > Forks > Seals | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop
and also what is splash bath oil. like i said i dont know much about it. so it takes some sort of oil in both legs and a different kind somewhere else? and what kind of lube do you use?
also its a different process to change the seals?
Yes pretty much any 5wt oil will do. But it's extremely unlikely that oil will need changed.well i plan on going to buy everything i need right now but will any 5wt fork oil work because there isnt much available here and i would like not to order online if possible.
and also what kind of lube do you use? its only for the spv right? is there some type i should stay away from?
I have used motorex, maxima and spectro 5wt all without problems. Pick one.Ok so I'm at the store. They have maxima, spectra golden, belray, and motorex. The motorex is really expensive. The maxima being the cheapest. What do u recommend? But basically I need 5 wt fork oil, lube, and 10w40 motor oil for each leg?
