just about as "level and true" as possible! (I'd say the bubble in my level is probably within 1/128 th of being dead center.) anyway,you'd think that either door would start to creep when partially open if track levelling were the problem.
I'd like to think that a company which makes "good stuff" like Johnson would build in enough drag into the rollers so that this wouldn't happen.

tnx,

Know how to check a level to see how accurate it is?
Just turn it around to see if you get the same reading.
I hardly think any company's going to have built in drag to offset someone not taking the time to set the header level.
