    Well, little more than a month later, I have a replacement I-drive
    opener, installed and working. Wayne Dalton has revised the
    instructions for installation, the original was to have the overhead
    tracks level. Now they suggest a 1" pitch downward. Since gravity is
    what closes the door, the cable would unspool at the start of closing.
    When my drum wrap fell off, the unspooling cable came off the drum,
    snagging the emerency release cable, ripping it out. So far, so good.
