Door Hinge Pins and Bushings - EM

The drivers door and pass door on my 61 coupe sag. Drivers door just a little but pass a ton. Need to install new pins and bushings. Clarks pins, while I am sure they are quality, are just so expensive for one single pin...

I was going to see if I could use NAPA part 675-1246 for the new pins and bushings instead. [www.napaonline.com] This guy did his hinges and they fit okay [www.corvairforum.com]

I see a longer pin and shorter pin. Im guessing its only the longer one that fits? What have you all done for replacing pins and bushings?

Worse case, if I need to buy 4 kits for 4 pins, still half the price of Clarks. Again, not hating on them. Custom vs NAPA, and Im sure they are well worth the expense.

Pins are all the same... just lengths!! Always been that way... Buy the long ones and cut them off!

Got calipers? The measuring type. not brake..... Or a small crescent wrench.

Measure diameter of your pin, visit Help* section of FLAPS and buy pins and bushings that fit.

You may cut long pins shorter.
