Your fork seals and mabey bushings are probably gone. When you put in the oil, work it into the valves, then, measure from the top of the fork wiout the spring in it, and wiht it completely collapsed, to the top of the oil, and it shoul dbe 100MM

dude what u do is take the springs out collapse the forks and fill them with oil to say for example 120mm from the top edge of the fork tube. it takes about a quart and a quarter for both forks but since i have to get two i like to flush a little thru mine before i fill them
