HQ DOOR HINGE REBUILD

Hello
I have just started the rebuild of the door hinges for my ute. I have I set of door hinge repair kits (ute works). Has any one ever fitted these do I
have to drill out holes etc. Also with the bar which runs on the roller, (Which holds the door open) mine has some wear am planning on hard facing
these to prevent future wear. Is there anywhere that I can get a template of non warn ones so I can rebuild mine. I have supplied pics of all. My aim
is to rebuild them to brand new status or better. Does anybody have any suggestions or different ideas.

Regards
les

Hi Les
I rebuilt my HQ door hinges but I didn't pull them down as far as you have. I popped the pin out, cleaned all the parts on the wire wheel, squeezed the new brass bushes in but then on nearly all the hinges I had to carefully file the face (where both surfaces of the hinges rub) of the brass bushes (must keep the face square) so to get the 2 hinge pieces to fit together. I made sure I took notice of which direction the pin went into the hinge, as the pin goes in from the top or bottom depending on which hinge your doing. I don't know if it matters, but I kept it the way I found it. My hinges work good and are tight. I used Rares bush kit so I don't know if it is different from your's.
Cheers
Keith
Oh, I squeezed the bushes in with a vice.

Hello,
Did you push the bushes from inside out or outside in. Did the original hinges have brass bushes in them or were they a steel drilled
hole just flogged out. If they didn't have a brass bush I might re-weld the holes and re-drill them.

The front doors had what looked like hard nylon/plastic bushes that were worn but still there. They basically fell out when I took the hinge apart. The bushes go from outside in, and the face area of the bush I feel is used to take up the tolerance between the 2 parts of the hinge once together, hence why I had to file the face down to make a snug fit. By the sound of it your hinges are badly worn, it might be better to grab a better set.
I will add this about the rear hinges (I know your's is a tonner). The original bushes on the rear doors came with one plastic and one brass bush. Why I don't know seeing they used all plastic in the front, but the Rare Spares kit does have a replacement plastic and brass bush for the rears. I didn't use the plastic bush, I used another brass. It worked ok.
Hope this helps.
Cheers
Keith
