To reinstall fork tubes into the triple clamps through the upper covers is difficult. Cut the head off a "junk" unit style fork cap that has the tapped hole for the dampener rod in a lathe. Drill and tap the hole thru the cap and screw in a 1 ft. length of 1/2" all thread rod. Lock it down with a nut. Screw this into the fork tube of the assembled fork leg. Insert it into the triple clamps through the cover. Put a large washer and nut on the protruding all thread and snug it up, pulling the tube into place.
