I probably can't even LIST all the things I need for Fish Out of Water, but one thing that is DEFINITELY needed is an even decent nylon alignment block on my G10 slider door hinge. I have gathered five separate mechanisms so far, and even the best conditioned one is still woefully worn out and allows a ton of slop as the assembly rolls on the track rail. Would ANYONE have one of these that isn't essentially trash? It seems to me that there would be a pretty decent cottage industry out there for someone to re-manufacture the entire slider hinge assemblies, complete with new springs, clips, bearings, cams, etc. At this point I have assembled a pretty decent stock arm assembly, and it appears to work pretty well opening and closing. However, I now see that when I open the door the entire way and it starts to swing inward at the aft end of the track, the inner panel hits the tire. That definitely WON'T work when I get it finished. However, putting everything back together with the extended arm leads to all sorts of problems. From the pictures it seems that the striker bracket is positioned WAY too far forward. With the original setup, the lower lever strikes the bracket, and then the upper lever locks around the extension as designed. When opened, it disengages and the spring pulls the door open and aft as intended. When I look at the extended arm assembly, the door ends up shutting long before the levers are even close to the striker bracket. I don't know if this was an inept installation, I have something wrong, or maybe both. Regardless, I know that these doors are notoriously finicky, but I am not going to resort to the gull wing option as my amigo Dave up in Nor Cal is going to resort to. So if anyone has some of this hardware that is not in degraded condition, especially the nylon blocks, please let me know. If I could even find a good one to use as a template, I may even be willing to get some made from nylon stock.

I have seen this thread pop up....is the consensus that the nylon slider block can be replaced with the roller bearing from the link?
