Fork rebuild thread?

I've been researching about the fork rebuild that I need to do tomorrow & everyone keeps referencing a Black Lab Thread that I can't seem to find. Below is one such reference with a link to a page I'm unauthorized for... (sorry couldn't post link due to noob status... so here it is not as a link... www .stromtrooper.com/.../109601-fork-tube-seal-replacement) Does anyone have a valid link? I sure would like pictures & a write-up vs all the YouTube videos I've seen...


Thanks in advance!

I think I didn't quite get the bottom bolts quite tight enough on the right side of my salvage bike. After sitting for months, not licensed, there is a wee wet spot on the garage floor where it sits.
i probably need to pull the axle and put the allen wrench up in there and give the handle a whack with a hammer and tighten it up to quit the seep.
Like you said the job can go smoothly but there is always room for error.
Hopefully you did it up correctly and have no leaks.
Happy riding.
