WHAT IS DONE TO SHOCKS WHEN REBUILT?
Externally cleaned to bare metal
Main shaft is machined, over-sized bushings installed in housing
Pistons and valving rebuilt
All new seals and gaskets
When done placed on our testing machine to be sure they come up to pressure on jounce and rebound
Final calibration if needed is done at this time
Painted with a gun metal gray primer, you may paint coat color over it
WHAT IS A HEAVY DUTY SHOCK?
Larger bronze bushings where main shaft rides
Valve body modified to make it stronger
30% stiffer than standard shock but will last much longer
2 year unlimited mileage warranty
WHAT DO I LEAVE ON SHOCKS BEFORE SHIPPING TO APPLE?
Leave the arms on but remove the links (a link connects the arm to the suspension). Leave the links on if you want them rebuilt
WHAT TYPE OF FLUID SHOULD BE USED FOR THE LEVER SHOCKS?
Shocks come filled with fluid, no need to check for 5 years.
Do not over fill, please leave a 3/4” air space to allow for expansion of fluid when shock heats up during use.
Use a good grade hydraulic oil such as Hydraulic jack oil obtained at most auto part stores in pint containers, or motorcycle fork oil in 10 or 20 weight, again be sure not to overfill.
Please do not use motor oil, brake fluid or transmission fluid, these fluids are not compatible with the seals and rubber components.
(10 to 20 weight SAE viscosity rating is equivalent to AW 46 hydraulic viscosity rating.)
Apple Hydraulics rebuilt shocks come filled with fluid, please do not remove filler plug for 5 years.
DO YOU HAVE REBUILD KITS FOR SHOCKS?
No rebuild kits for shocks, our seals will not fit a stock shock because we remachine the housing and shaft during the rebuilding process
WHAT DO YOU DO TO REBUILD CARBURETORS?
Carbs are completely disassembled and cleaned. Housings re-bushed, new throttle shafts, new jets, needles, and float valves. All new gaskets and O rings. Individually flow bench tested.
WHAT DO I LEAVE OFF CARBURETORS BEFORE SHIPPING TO APPLE?
Do not send:
vacuum and gas line hoses
linkage between carbs
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RESLEEVING AND REBUILDING A BRAKE CYLINDER?
