    I made new sliders out of straightened PVC pipe. I used a heat gun to first flatten the half 3" length of pipe, then to form it to the slider.

    Great job! What did you seal it with?

    I'm doing the same thing with my Grady. Might make my own or modify something like this.

    It is aggrevating with that thing clanging around. I just wet sanded and sealed my seats.

    Do you have a picture from the web of one? I've searched and have not found any mounts that look like this. They were once common.

    some of the new mounts have nylon inserts that slide in the brackets..they are probably worn away.

    Not sure what 'new' was like, but my seats are the same bracket and very sloppy as well. I figured it was deliberate that they would slide fore and aft.

    Of course my seats are also so corroded to the posts they won't budge a hair. When seated I can face any direction I want, as long as its forward.

    A sleeve on the pedestal? The female socket isn't sloppy on the pedestal, rather that socket plate moves back and forth, side to side, within the square frame.

    Seat slop

    Are my seats missing a nylon spacer or slider? The sliding portion is sloppy within the frame section.





    Side to side movement amount:
