I have rebuilt my rear dampers and have forgotten how to fill with oil. It needs air bleeding out and for the life of me I am missing how! The last time I did this was probably 1986 before the first Coppa delle Alpi and the grey cells with that info have stopped firing.
So advice please.
Also I am not using the mix as advised in the handbook (70% Veedol SAE20 + some thin stuff) - I have used 15-40 in the past. Is this OK?

Brass allen key'd plug on top should be removed, and fill with correct grade oil. I disconnect the drop arm and work the lever up and down to make sure the oil is circulating - keep filling until it's spilling out of the top.
