SP2 fork preload adjuster stuck
I've learned a lot from this excellent forum, but am now stymied.
After rebuilding my forks, one of the spring preload adjusters will not turn. I have tried turning it both ways as hard as I dare with no success.
I have loosened and removed the 8-sided nut with no effect. It feels like the threaded adjuster is frozen to the inner threaded portion of the fork cap.
With a wrench on the flats of the adjuster, there is a small amount of rotation in each direction before it feels like a very solid stop.
I'm planning on pulling the fork out and apart again on Saturday but wondered if this is anything one of you more experienced people have encountered. I would certainly like to save unneeded work if possible!
Thanks in advance!
