Does any body know what seals l need to refill my shock absorbers with new oil ?
They look like ,copper crush washers ,but not sure . Is the filler washer the same as the drain / valve ?

Gary,
The thread on the filler plug is 5/16" x 26 BSB. A copper crush washer 8mmID will fit. I have used fibre washers 8x14x1.5mm without any issues. I fitted reservoirs on my front dampers for inspection and filling purposes.
