just putting my forks together on me featherbed frame new stauntions ect . noticed a twist in them when i looked from the top. i have seen the same twist before on another set of forks i had . on these the top yoke was a side car one but i have fitted a normal one now. did they ever alter the domed bottom yoke in any way to suit side car use. i know the side car bottom yoke is flat in appearance. funny i have seen the same thing on two different sets of yokes. obviously theres a difference in mine making the twist but i cant put my finger on it.

I'd say the yolk was twisted assuming the stanchions are straight?

Put the top yoke on and slide the stanchions up, that will show you which one is bent?

 did as you said Dan, it made it better for me to pin point where the problem lay . then did as you suggested Robert i used an old stauntion to bend adjust the bottom yoke as to reposition the stauntion . looks ok now  smiley

 thanks . Barry
