I have a 99 with 3865 slide also.
I have been following these threads with some interest.
I have not had any problems but when it goes out at the front behind the drivers chair I get this awful metal crashing sound as it drops into place.
It comes in very smooth and also goes out smooth but its just that last little bit that gets your attention. I have been going to look to see what that might be.
Does anyone have any ideas and should I be worried?

Not on the sprocket itself but on sprocket gear hubs both sides that tighten to shaft for sprocket gear and one that is tightened into key slot of sprocket shaft that is on yoke that sprocket shaft fits into.
The two on both sides of sprocket gear should be the ones to loosen.
You will also see the two jam nuts that are for the adjustment for the inward stop movement of slide. DO NOT loosen these at this time. You may not have to do anything with them if you can get the rail for slide with holes onto the nipple of sprocket. With help pushing the slide the nipple may reset itself.
Looking at stop nuts they maybe out from the stop bracket pushing in the slide should push them flush against the stop bracket. The forward slide rail is over my LP tank yours maybe in a compartment same thing will apply.
If its required should follow this operation. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
