Hi Bootsie - your first post - so welcome to the forum
I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'the cup' .... but once you've released the fork tops with their small nuts that hold the top of the springs - you can let the stanchion slide into the fork bottom revealing the spring.
The spring has a threaded section on the bottom which screws into the bottom of the fork leg. So rotating the spring in an anti clockwise manner will unscrew it.
To remove the stanchion you want to unscrew the chrome seal retainer and slide it off, then you can get at the top bush to remove it and then pull out the stanchion revealing the bottom bush.
Thank You kindly for this info Sir ! the lovely Haynes manual failed to mention about the small nuts and unscrewing the springs ! only mentioned "the cup" which turns out be the oil seal holders! this is my first classic restoration and im learning all the time !
thanks again and thanks for the welcome to this great site
