Mine were done by WP suspension, Manby. A company long gone.
I believe it was 5wt oil, 150mm down.

Miles,

If anyone can help it will be Richard Negus, who often contributes to this forum, you could try a PM.

Hi Miles,
You left a phone number for me to call you back.
I think the number you gave is incorrect as, at the third call, a very irate lady gave me an earfull and claimed not to know you.
Please try again on my landline, around 7pm is best.
Regards,
R.
