Default Door Strike Posts on 86

If I could get some of you guys or gals to check something for me I would appreciate it. My door strike posts have an actual "roller" that the door latching guide rides on when closing the door. I just wonder if any of the other owners have noticed this on theirs. You can take a rag or paper tael and grasp the strike area on the post and see if yours turns. You may have to use a pair of channel lock or pliers to get it to trun if it hasn't been kept lubed. Thanks, Wayne

Thanks, i just wanted to be sure . My 84 when I bought it new also had them and they certainly do need lubing . I'll bet very few people even know they rotate,or are "supposed" to rotate ! I'll let everyone know if OPG's version has the rotator. Thanks

Sounds like you need new hinge pins and bushings. Nothing unusual to the elkies because of the door weight.

open the door and pick up the door from the bottom and the door will probably have a lot of slop up and down.

If your hinge pins and bushings were replaced and you still have a problem, the doors were not aligned properly. The strike post is not supposed to align the door,only for the latch to lock onto.The roller post are a thing of the past ,according to OPC . We may be able to find some NOS some day. The new posts from Dixie Monte Carlo are nicely made.Get you somebody that "knows"how to align these old doors and you will probably be fine. WP
