I had to make a tool to get the allen bolt lose on the bottom of the legs. The tool holds a internal 24mm socket on the damper tube so it does not turn wile you loosen the allen cap screw. That allows you to remove the damper from the lower leg. I drilled out a 24mm nut with a 3/4 drill bit and welded it to a 1" x 12" piece of pipe. Then I drilled out a 21mm nut with a 5/8 drill and welded it to the other end so I could attach a wrench to hold it from turning. Don't know why I chose a 21mm for the other side, just thought it made no sense to have them both the same size. It let me try out my new Save Phace weld helmet with the wide view and #2 cheater lens. Wow! What a difference over my old Hobart Hood. I just might get those welds to stop looking like Gummy Worms and start looking like dimes.
