Question about Marzocchi 2008 XC 700 ATA Mountain Bike Fork 100-140mm
Just bought a bicycle fork is there an easy guide how to install it?
Remove front wheel
undo allen screw or bolt securing headstem to fork
remove headstem and handlebars
undo lock nut & ring retaining bearings, at top of fork tube, do not lose bearings which may be loose.
withdraw fork from fork tube, do not lose upper bearing race
remove lower bearing from old fork
install lower bearing on new fork (I prefer replacing bearings)
remove brake caliper from old fork install on new fork
insert fork in fork tube
install upper bearing (I prefer replacing bearings)
install retaining ring and lock nut on fork tube, adust untill there is no wobble, but free movement, too tight the bearings will collapse too loose the rider will fall off
tighten lock nut
tighten headstem allen key - bolt
install front wheel

This is most likely not the answer you are looking for, but I would highly recommend taking these into a bike shop that has experience with the Marzocchi's. These are fairly complicated and require some speciality tools, and extremely easy to do damage that will be an expensive fix later.
First red flag is that the rebound screw does not move. A fork overhaul is probably in order, replace the seals and oil, check all the screws too make sure they are not stripped, adjust the air pressure, and so on. The bonus is a shop that can perform this overhaul, will also be happy to show you how to maintain the fork and how to adjust everything properly, and if you don't have a fork pump, sell you that as well. Trust me, these can be challenging without knowing exactly what you are doing, I am highly trained and I still have issues now and then with Suspension Forks.
I have included a video with a Marzocchi tech guy explaining a slightly newer version of your fork, Yours is basically the same.
Here is the link to the Owners Manual for your fork. If this is not correct you can get any manual for any fork they have made off the Marzocchi website under tech.
