1937 Trunk hinge Springs?


Recommended Posts

Guys, I've been doing som digging into my own hinges and it appears there are no springs in the conventional way of thinking. It is a ratchet in which two small spring steel pieces lock the hinge and then by further lifting the decklid, another ratchet releases the lid. Quite ingenius I believe. The reason mine was not working, and maybe never did was that the spring steel was out of allignment with the ratchet mechenism. I'm not done yet but I think I can repair this thing myself. I'll let you know how it goes.
