Reba questions

I've just received a pair of 2009 Rebas, purchased on eBay as an upgrade from my Solo Air XC32s! So far they seem to be amazing - smooth as butter, really light and very adjustable.

I have a few questions!

They were advertised with lockout not working - I realise this is quite a common issue with Motion Control dampers, however the symptoms with these aren't the same. The lockout makes a difference to the forks, with the forks hitting a softish 'bumper' at around 50mm of travel. They can go through this easily however. The rebound works perfectly and the forks use all of their travel too.

As far as I'm aware if the damper o-ring fails (don't know which one) the oil will fall into the lowers and prevent the forks from using full travel, which isn't the case with mine.

Also, none of the adjustments 'click'. The compression, rebound and floodgate adjusters don't have any indentations and just turn freely - is this normal?

Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for any help!

I have no idea what's going on here.
