I had a small leak around a window so I removed and resealed. I have replaced lots of old rivets but that is also very minor . Currently I'm putting 1/2 in bc plywood over my original floor to make a nice smooth surface for the new vinyl flooring.when flooring is complete ill be viewing the sight for ideas on a more modern interior. Thanks to all who take the time to post their insights and experiences
The need to replace loose rivets is caused by vibration.
In your case, that could be caused by the axles having bad rubber rods in them.

The rubber rods usually only last about 25 years or so.
