I recently took my z1's apart to replace the seals, only to find that one of the hydraulic cartridges was broken
The slider/rod thing that goes into the catridge had come out. By the looks of it the rod has a thread on the end so I am assing this screws into the plunger bit inside the body of the catridge.
The trouble i am having is holding the plunger still while i try and screw the rod back in. The catridge looks like it is press sealed and the plunger is inside that.
I tried wedging a spoke through the outlet hole in the bottom of the catridge to hold the plunger still. This didn't work too well, it just came out again after a days riding.
If anyone has had a similar problem please let me know if and how you solved it. If anyone else has some suggestions, tell me.
