How do I adjust this old pocket door hardware?
Recently purchased 1903 Victorian. Double pocket doors, one side works great, the other drags on the floor so can't be opened and shut. I was wondering if anyone has ever seen this particular hardware. I'd like to know if turning that adjustment screw OUT would pull the door higher. Right now it is screwed all the way in. I know the obvious answer is to adjust it and see what happens, but the door is super heavy and difficult to work with, and the hardware is old and I don't want to play around with it unnecessarily. That hanging piece clips onto the top of the door (there's one in front, one in back) and holds it up. The further that clip is screwed out and away from the body of the piece, the further away the wheel will be from the edge of the door. Will that lift the door higher? I just don't get how this should work. Pix attached. Any advice is most appreciated.
