I read on other threads donít touch the clutch side pinch bolts ? Is this true ?
Yes, the lhs pinch bolts are not touched, they hold the socket that the axle fits into.

I am stuck on putting back the dust cup (new).

The RDS manual says to use a special tool to push the dust cup in. Are all just using their fingers? I can't push it in

You should be able push it on. Use a little seal grease to aid it going in (said the actress to the bishop).

You can use a piece of PVC over the fork leg and seat it with some more force, just make sure the end is square, free of any sharp edges.

A plastic tool or screw driver can be used to lightly tap it into place. That's bushy but it will get it done. Normally you just compress the fork all the way down and knock it in that way before the fork is assembled.

thank you, will give it another try tonight.

I did put some fork oil around the edge of the seal, but will try to put some on the tube as well... the manual says to use the special tool, hence I thought it can't be done without it, but will try again

Are you sure the seals are in the correct way around and seated in far enough for the spring clip to seat in the groove?

it is the first time I am doing this, so NO, I am not sure.

But it looks like even I if have the problem you mentioned, the dust cup should go in at least one millimeter, but NO, it does not go it at all...like it is almost too large

Is the spring clip seated?
Did you buy new dust seals or reuse?

A few pictures could go a long way to understanding exactly what you are thinking is wrong.

There very well could be confusion over terminology, on either side...just thinking out loud here.
