 Good point.  Is the damper going completely dry or is the level just dropping.  Try lifting the piston.  Does it resist lifting?  If so you have enough.

Alex,  my recollection of the TR3 SUs is that there is nowhere for oil to go.
One way one might suspect a leak is if the damper is overfilled... then the excess will work out and the level go down.

Quick question…. I am losing damper oil which appears to be showing up at the bottom of the Jet assy. Looking at the Moss catalog diagram of the su for a TR3..there is a part named seal cork with a replacement called 0-ring (leak free replacement. Could this be the cause of my leak…open to any and all suggestions. Also…would the lack of adequate oil in the damper cause the engine to sputter and backfire?
