Window roller - is that the handle for winding it down? 

They're held on by a cross-head screw in the centre - the plastic trim piece
hides it.  Make sure it is pushed on fully and splinesd are engaged.
There's a big coiled spring behind the door card, and a plastic washer
between the handle and the plastic surface of the door card.

The  passenger door window roller pops off every time I shut that door.
Did  originals have an allen wrench nut that could be tightened to keep it
in  place?

I don't think so, as I don't remember seeing any in there.

Speaking of allen wrenches, one of my steering column screws  is stripped.
Will bug parts fit?  Anyone got the bolt and the  black, flat nut piece?

You might try contacting Mike Fisher. He's got a few cars that he's parting,
and could probably have exactly what you need.
