Anyone ever opened one up before? The welded on top appears to be holding in an insert that might be removable/replaceable much as the older Z guys have, but wanted to see if I'm reinventing the wheel before going through with it.
No worries mate...I have an appropriate containment area for opening them up in case there is any charge left (though it may leak oil on the floor...messy, but not dangerous). The gas is nitrogen...non flamable. I just wanted to know if anyone had bothered before. I have some depleted ones here and wanted to see about the construction of the damper and insert for a potential project.
