Door hinge bushings


Recommended Posts

If I press in new door hinge bushings, do they need to be reamed to the correct diameter, or are they already sized correctly?

If they need to be reamed, does anyone know of a tool for this purpose? Any experience out there on this subject?

(My car is a '38 but I am sure the question would apply to many different years.)

Jeff, I did this on my '36 Roadmaster. I first bought the bushings before taking the hinges apart. I guess I must have beat the hell out of the pins getting them out because they wouldn't fit into the bushings and they even looked bent. I ended up buying new pins with bushings and all is now peaceful in that department.
