Taking SCARY out of used bikes, one bike at a time.
Taking this fork off, I found a weird stick lube, and the spacers were installed incorrectly. In the state, it was it is unsafe and could not be adjusted correctly. It must have happened when the prior owner took it apart and got the order of parts mixed up.
When I cleaned all the parts and inspected them for damage, I replaced the damaged bearings and repacked them with high-quality bearing grease. Once back together, it was smooth and ready to go.
