Hank,
nice job. Hopefully this will be the end of the issues with the slide.

Question.
I just had mine installed last week at the dealer they used round head screws, looking at the pictures I see these plates are countersunk. Should I ask that the screws be changed?

Mine are counter sunk flat screws. I would work the slide in and out and see if it seems to make a difference. If not they may be fine.

Thanks Jason,
I'll be going back to Indiana tgo pick it back up this week after the furnaces are repaired. The techs seem to be diligent and the service manager is on the ball so hopefully they checked it.

Only if they are being rolled over by the roller, if not it's just cosmetic. If the roller is hitting them, then I would make them change to flat heads.....

If it's any distance to the dealer AND the screw heads are a problem, just get some ss flat heads and replace them yourself. Less hassle.

Slide out plates

To all; be careful in the term Stainless Steel fasteners. Specify 300 series, non magnetic SS. There is technically a Stainless steel( 410 Martensite) that is highly corrosive when in contact with aluminum. The 410 Martensite is magnetic, easiest way to identify.
