Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
How far apart did you have the system?
When you removed the piston from the trim, did any of the springs or balls come out of it?
Did they fall out?
did you get part 17 installed correctly?
the issue is going to lie in one of the check valves. Did any debris fall into the cylinder when you had it open?
What type of fluid are you using?
Either one of those orings was pinched when you reinstalled them, or something is amiss on the stop piston.
Would that be spring 20?
Ok, can you move that spring any or is it stuck?
with a screwdriver you should be able to move one or the other. May take quite a bit of force.
Don't know that I would remove that keeper. Get a bit of carb cleaner and spray on the spring and the ball. See if you can get it freed up.
