Does a good tutorial thread exist for rebuilding the door mechanisms? I have not been able to find a thread dedicated to it or seen it buried in a build thread. Any help would be appreciated. I have put this job off for long enough because I have heard its quite a pain in the ass.FranzKeymasterApril 12, 2018 at 8:36 amPost count: 3524
Not that I know of.
What door you working on? Front bus doors are easy. Cargo doors are not. Most likely they will need some tig welding on the cam inside the mech.Douglas E FreshParticipantApril 12, 2018 at 8:49 amPost count: 120

soak/clean with solvent. lube with spray lithium grease.
Sometimes the mounting flange breaks loose. Easy to weld the steel back together.Douglas E FreshParticipantApril 12, 2018 at 9:27 amPost count: 120
Good Stuff. Thanks Franz. Was Planning on taking 4/20 off and bringing my bus in. Are you going to be available that weekend?FranzKeymasterApril 13, 2018 at 8:54 amPost count: 3524
Weekend no. Friday kind of. Rusty probably has me scheduled to work on blue thunder.
What do you need? Carb tune?Douglas E FreshParticipantApril 13, 2018 at 9:00 amPost count: 120
Yeah pretty much. Normal maintenance. I wasn’t able to make it in last year because I was so tied up with new house so its in need of a little lovin. I was taking the day off as well and could help with some things as well.FranzKeymasterApril 13, 2018 at 11:52 amPost count: 3524
I don’t know exactly how busy I’ll be on Friday. But I am sure I can find time to help. Bring it down.
