Would closely examine the track itself for something lodged in between a couple of teeth. Don't believe the channel needs any reinforcement unless you see evidence of it being belled out on the end.

I could see of the top the square tubing rise up about 1/8 of inch plus the slight bow around there. Got it flat with a c clamp yesterday but it didn't stay flat.

It's welded to the frame and would a pain to remove and weld a new one on.

Was thinking about a strap or c channel would be great if I could find the it. Or maybe a flat bar just on the top that would fit in the gap between frame and the tubing. Not sure if it would keep it from jumping.

A channel or T section would add a multiplied amount of strength compared to just flarbar. If its dipping 1/8" with load at the gulley would be more than enough for the pinion gear to "skip".

Herk, I think a 16 ga strip the entire length between the wear strip and the channel with a 5/16" hole in it to hold it in place would be better than a 5/16" flat washer at the end.

Thank u herk. Cannot believe I have spent over $300 with tv techs and a washer laying inside my compartment fixed. Probably wrap it later on if it ever messes up again.

Wished I had checked to moved satellite receiver from the shelf. Know need to reattach the molding back on nice and tight.

Thanks again. Been close to two years and fixed and done.
