I can not visually detect any difference in the hinges between each other or the ones they replace. Yet the door while still level seems to have repositioned the door lower by about 1/4 inch (.63 cm for our metric neighbors).
I'm puzzled. I would expect new socket of hinge and new brass ball would have raised things a touch or at least remained the same height. The hinges replaced were old (35+ years) but the ball and bolt were replaced a couple of years ago.
Anyone else seen this type of thing with new Scamp
Oh and I am hoping that some butyl tape behind those hinges will deal with a persistent leak on the hinge side of the door. Of course it rained off and on while I replaced the hinges, but stopped just as I finished so no natural test yet.
Also time for new door seal, going after the black foam stuff 1/2 x 3/4 people have reported finding at Lowes. Does that stick out from behind the door when the door is closed?
Do you go over or outside the trim? And do you curve to follow the top of the door or just cut that as a "cap" applied above the foam running down the sides?
Also replaced the butyl tape sealing the above the door rain guard. Those tiny rivets were a pain. Slid a wire through the hole with a bent end to turn the remains of the rivet sideways and shove them aside, seems to work ok. I can tell that they are there don't think anyone else (dear wife) will notice them trapped under the ensolite. Doing it over I think I would drill to match the sleeve more in order to remove more of the old rivet as shavings. Just an observation.
getting re-bedded in butyl tape as soon as weather and time permits. Then couch goes back in. Tired of that front dance floor, nice storage lousy seat.
