That's a good point about the handles. Tightening them was the first thing I tried and didn't think to mention it.

There were no caps on mine. They must've been removed by a previous owner.

As for long term effects of the vaseline, I did mine in '08 and the seals are still soft.

Now if I could find replacement screens that work well...
