I'm dismantling my forks for the first time and I have run into a problem getting the cylinder valve assembly out of the bottom of the fork. I'm holding the fork in a vise at the base of the inner tube where the axle slides through, and I tried to unscrew it out but it's not coming out. I'm following the manual word for word(minus the special tools)and I'm wondering if the damper rod has to be held (because it's turning) or whatever, I just don't know. These are my first set of inverted forks I've worked on. Any help is appreciated.
