door hinge worn not the pin

There are threads about problems with the door hinge pin and also adjusting the door by loosening the hinge but has anyone tried to have the worn hinge holes drilled out to the next size larger and putting in a larger pin?

Drilling will give to much slop for a long term fix, they should be bored or reamed. All the set up time will cost more than new hinges.

But John, therein lies the rub. The hinge for a 67 is not available. The pin is. option one is to find a door in a bone-yard. You will have to buy the whole thing to get the hinge Or have a machine shop re-bore the pin hole and make a new pin for the door.

If that is the way you have to go make sure that they put in bushings. They will be cheaper to replace in the future once the machining is done, they can be bored for a stock pin.

John is right on. Make several bushings so you will have replacements. Bronze bushings are easy to make however the metal is soft. Just keep em well oiled.

Thanks guys for all your comments. That confirms the direction I was thinking about going. Guess I'll be ordering a new pin from Andy so I can get the right size bushing. Just put new weather stripping on the door and have noticed that I have to pull up on the door a bit to close it properly and not ruin the stripping.

Two steps forward, one step back.....

Thanks again
David
