I'm replacing the seals on my fork and it looks like it hasn't been serviced in a long while (2nd owner). The top seal, i think it's called the dust cap seal, the one that is exposed to the outside, is really on there. It seems to have bonded with the fork body and i spend an hour or so carefully scraping off pieces of it.

are there any tips that can make this a little easier before i tackle the other side?

the fork is a marzocchi drop-off comp that came on a 04 kona coiler.

thanks for the tips, i'll give them a try if i decide to go forward. it looks like the second seal inside is going to be just as much of a pain, so i don't know if it's worth the trouble since i was just changing them for the sake of changing them.

i was mis-informed on the size seals i needed, so i may give it another try while i wait for the new seals to come in.
