We do have quite a collection of pads ( nylon maybe ) that our slides ride on. These can breakup and become loose and punch a hole in a slide seal. Please don't ask me how I might know that. Pads are available from HWH.

Aye! I keep forgetting about those Valids on later models. When did those come into play? Always curious about the other systems as well though, too.

Was there any rust or signs of water there? Is there a window above that bearing?
