In 1985 Ohlins stopped making the early style Seal heads (1978-1982) for the remote reservoir and early piggyback shocks. A new design was used on the New 1983-1985 Husqvarna Ohlins "ITC" style rear shock that was superior and retro fitted back to all Ohlins Twin Shocks, 1978 and newer.
To kit or reseal a pair of earlier style Ohlins, all you needed to do to accomodate this better seal head was to go to the later shock body cap. Not a big difference, it is 6mm deeper, but early caps will not fit back on once the new seal heads are used.
This later Piggyback end cap may already be on your early remote Ohlins. It is identified by light gold color and a body groove (this groove allows for a much easier removal). The earlier caps were a simple, low profile design, more difficult to remove, as you have to dig in between the cap and body to tap out of body.
