And of course a new rubbing block since Colin pointed out mine was near death. It still sounds louder than I remember the BobD bus sounding, but I could not get the grit out of my lower support bearing try as I might.

Sand the lower track to a glossy shiny lightly lubricated delicious smoothness. If yours has slight rust pockets, the rollers rumble . . .

I'm doing this process now, thanks for the awesome write up. Got my mechanism out, my nylon block is blown the hell out, so that will be replaced. The roller was not moving, a little help from PB Blaster got it rolling but before I spend any time on the roller, I have a question...

Is there more than one roller design? Mine doesn't have an outer lip like what I see above. It only has an inner lip. It doesn't look like it's broken or an outer lip (part that would actually be closer to the body) is worn off.

Your outer lip has taken its leave of the premises. Get a new proper roller.
