I have 2 hinges -trying to repair with bushings and new pins. Still when assembled they have play in the hinge- which seems to be the pins have play in the part that does not have bushings.
Pin is too small or hole is worn . Anyone ever put bushings in that part of the hinge ?

I've done it for a guy that had an old truck he was restoring. What I would recommend, is that you bring all the parts to a machine shop and see if they will do it for you, or if you know someone with a lathe and a bridgeport they could probably help you out.

I did it this past winter. The kit I got I had to drill the holes out larger to accept the new sirated bushings. The pins fit ver tight and no more sag or movement. Just like new again
