I have just finished fixing the jalousie window on my '72 boler
. At the same time I applied 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of metallic spray paint
to the metal bits. And I replaced 2 broken hinges, hence the need for disassembly. I am pretty sure I got the right hinges (#835), as they fit fine.
But when I reassemble, the mechanism opens and closes the panes, but in the closed position, the left side (opposite side to the crank handle) doesn't close and seal properly. There is maybe 1/8 - 1/4 inch gap which I can force closed by hand, but when I release, it just springs back to reopen the gap. The crank-side closes and seals well. Almost as if the window panes are bent, but with the "glass" still in them, how could they be? or could they be?
A second thing - I have tried adjusting the hinges by trying all 3 hole positions for the screws.
Has anyone had any such issues? Or any ideas?
