    I've noticed variations in how smoothly the damper operates and so opened up the top. Seems like the damper adjuster is loose on the damper - the bolt holding it to the damper has ether backed out of the nut beneath, or else the damper adjuster is worn? Or?

    I can see a washer under the bolt head on the damper adjuster, I can't (yet) turn the bolt/nut assembly to tighten it - have penetrating oil working on it. The adjustment bolt is already all the way 'in'. Has anybody experienced this problem?
