Pocket door sliding hardware

Howdy from a newbie. Just got a 1975 Excella 500 & need to do a bit of work on it. Basically, it's in decent shape for being 46 years old but it needs a little work.



My main concern is the pocket door hardware, specifically, the forward pocket door which is behind the galley. There's a ceiling track & a floor track for the single insert door, which is missing the top follower & bottom follower. This is the door which slides against the passenger side bulkhead.



Does anyone know of a vendor supplying these items? They are the type which slide in the "T" slot (top & bottom), to align & guide the door as it moves from the stowed position to the closed position to create a barrier between the galley & the bedroom.



Thanks, tim

Pics would help, but I believe, from your description, that this hardware may be the sam all the way up though the 2010ish model year Classics. I don't have a "bottom track", but the top may be the same.
Since we don't have a vendor name, and there are likely a plethora of similar pieces in the marketplace, I would call AS and see if they can point you anywhere.

Pocket Door Hardware

Hi - I didn't have to buy parts...just put a screw back in place for the track on my rear pocket door. That required taking the wall apart to get at...but that's another story.

Anyhow in my research I found the hardware in this link that matches what I have in my 2008 Classic S/O.

Hope that helps!

Best!

Slider

Thanks for both of the replies. I need to get a picture of the slider, but the track I have is different than the roller track type. Will get outside & try to get something which works.

Here's the picture of the slider in place at the top of the door.

Try contacting etrailer.com. They had the metal slider used by my 2004. They may have the one you pictured. I would email them the picture.
