The shock is a Marzocchi 053. The last one they developed before fox buying them.

I believe the bladder has lost pressure, as It is suffering from really slow rebound at fully open.
My dhx5 had the same issues when put it back on, but that was fixed by pumping up the ifp/boost valve pressure.

There is a tool for inflation, there isn’t a rubber pellet but a valve core buried into the IFP chamber from what this is showing

There is no valve just a rubber pellet. The marzocchi tool was a needle, possibly with a threaded section to keep from slipping during inflation.

" Here, as with the models without a piggyback, you will find a soft rubber stopper that you have to pierce with a hollow needle (0.8mm) to increase or reduce the pressure. "

The details are too blurry in this image, but these are the Tools/adapters that were available from Andreanni for service centres.
it lists 2 different needle adapters

I'm pretty sure the NCR adapter is the left one

Then super easy, work out the pellet stopper thread and get a schrader valve body with that thread. Teflon tape or thread locker or a suitably sized oring will allow it to seal.




They looks like this.
