I have opened the cassette and it appears well built.  I have come up with an mounting plate design to go on the roof with hole in the middle for the cassette to extend through and to support the cassette.  This plate will be sealed to the roof and made water proof.  I'm going to have a one inch square welded all the way around the outside edge of the plate.  This will provide enough thickness that I can drill and tap for bolts to seal the cover to the plate.  I expect the aluminum plate and bar to arrive tomorrow.  Once I have the plates cut and welded I will look for someone to make aluminum covers.  Pictures to come.

Stop @ Olmstead point on the way out to the east. Walk down the steps, turn right, go about 100 yards and turn left up the rock. Outstanding views looking back towards Half Dome. Great burgers @ the little place across the street from the Chevron on the north side of town. Decent pizza @ Camp Curry.
HEED the warnings about food and bears.

Lin, hi!
heres a straight up procedure I was taught a few years ago; have a full supply of air in the system, block all the other wheels, release the park brake and confirming no vehicle movement then jack the wheel off the ground you are adjusting.
dot best spec is 1/2"-3/4" rod movement, this also should be correct rod angle if any major replacement was done as the angle should have been set proper by the wrench doing it.
or that's what I was tested on.
When adjusted to a full loc or applied, I was taught its best to first check that no drag at 1/4 if so 1/2 that's the reason for jacking and I'm sure a lesson for myself, it was a good one. If there was a drag a wise choice to take a better look and usually remove the cover for a look see.
If you happen to be close to a truck shop at the parts counter they probably have a stack of card board or even plastic angle measure "templates" given to them by the brake mfg's. they pass them on to the techs and customers.
any more questions feel free to ask
have a good day
Floyd
