You can replace the complete sealhead for around $45.00. that way you get the bushing wiper and shaft seal which should be replaced anyway.

To rebuild your sealhead you have to take it all apart. You can pull the top out bumper out of it by pushing a fairly wide flat blade screw driver under it and twisting it and prying it up. Or you can grab it with a needle nose and pull it out.

Then remove your seal plate, seal and pry the dust cover off the top. Then you can get in there and press your bushing out from the top down.

I knew I missed something on this thread.

Anyway, that screw is there to hold your rebound adjuster in so to speak. If you were to ever pull one out you'd understand whats going on in there. The whole assembly can be removed if need be. Sometimes you get one thats a little stickey and you can clean them up during the tear down process even without removing the assembly.

There is also a hex (allen head) screw on the side of the clevis. You can remove that and there will be a small spring and ball bearing behind it. That is your detent for the adjuster so it clicks into position. If you remomve these things and spray out with some brake cleaner and compressed air then shoot some WD 40 (or equivalent, I use Mobil Synthetic Spray Lube) in those holes you can work that adjuster so it frees up and spins nice. Just don't lose your little ball bearing and spring. I have only had to remove one in all the time I've been working on them and I was still able to get that one to work again. Really, there is no need to remove the screw from the bottom unless you intend to pull the assembly out of the clevis.
