64 Overlander - look at this

64 Overlander:

Here is an older post from 2005 about repairing the LeDeux lifters on Hehr roof vents. Hope you find it useful. Enjoy!

Extra LaDeau Lifter

Dear DieselEagle,

If you have extra LaDeau lifters I would be interested in all of them. I am currently working on mine but am having no luck. How would I arrange for this? I think your astrodome turned out really well. Looks like you have a pretty nice shop in which to work.
Thanks

Diesel, thanks for sending them. 64Overlander, sorry to get the jump on you. The advise on that 2005 thread helped me get two more of mine working, but I still had two that were worthless. Hopefully you can get yours working or find another free pair.
Norm

this is too crazy

I've been gone forever since asking the original question, am just now getting back and find that you all have been making suggestions, clarifications and transactions. Too cool. Well, I am having a heck of a time getting any one who wants to work in this town, Elephant Butte, and am so frustrated, as I was when I originally got on this thread, but I have made a lot of progress on my own. I still need to reinstall the dome. Along with it came a screen and rubber gaskets. I don't even remember what I ordered from Andy. I thought I had ordered some vent hoods. It sounds like you all are moving along very nicely. I am stripping (waiting period) some metal with removall. I've had it sitting in my living room since back in May. It'll be interesting to see how long this stuff takes to work. Well, thanks for responding and all the great ideas. I'm trying to find luminari? as he wants to take my ripped out stuff, I think. I'm off. bye for now.

Hi Andy,

I just purchased 2 14x14 solar domes form my 91 AS. Ive read the instructions that came with the domes but have questions: When drilling the holes needed to attach the lifting brackets do I drill all the away thru or just into the space between the interior flat surface and the curved dome surface? I see that attaching the brackets 1 way, the rivets will go all the way through to the outside; using the other way I can just drill into the space I mentioned and avoid penetrating outside. Option 2 seems most logical but logical isn't always correct.

Tim.

Drill all the way through both layers, "slowly".

Then insall the rivets with the rivet heads on the top of the cover.

That provides maximum hold down security.

Place a small dab of Par-bond on top of the rivet head.

Andy

Thanks, Andy. The backing washers on the outside too? Or both inside/ outside? I purchased some sikaflex 221 - can I use that as a seal for the rivets too?

Small backup washers on the outside are ok, but not really needed.

A small amount of Sikaflex works great.

While I was cleaning up my lifters, the top hinge bracket separated from the lifter pin. I can't figure out how to reattach the bracket. Is there a special tool that loosens the odd shaped pin that holds the bracket in place? Has anyone ever had a machine shop drill out that pin and replace it with a screw? The lifters now work great, but I am unable to reconnect them to the astradome.

Thanks,
Dave

The lifters are fastened to the Astrodome with soft "pop rivets", and then adding a little sealer to the exterior head of the rivets.

Thanks, Andy. This part I understand. It is attaching the hinge and flange to the lifter itself that I am having trouble with.

You may have to replace the operator (lifter).

Andy, do you carry these vent operators?
Thanks!
