1985 LTD Air Suspension
QUESTION: Would it be normal to find oil in the Suspension Air Manifold Distributor?

I can see nothing that would block a certain amount of oil from the forks being forced into the air manifold distributor when adjusting the fork air pressure down. The vent line from the air manifold distributor vents to the ground via rubber hose running down the right front frame downtube.

Any thoughts or experiences would be welcomed. Thanks in advance for any comments on this.

I have the entire system torn apart and am currently awaiting some parts to reinstall.

I had the same thing when I stripped mine down earlier this winter, I couldn't see a reason for it other than at some time there might have been a low enough pressure in the system to allow it to seep back into the valve.

Don't forget to dry or replace the desiccant.
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.
