MG TD TF 1500 - Anyone got a used right side lower door hinge?
|took both doors off to work on getting them adjusted. 3 of the 4 hings were somewhat bent and the pins are loose so will work on fitting over sized pins. The 4th hinge, right side lower, had been broke at sometime in the past and had a rather crappy job of brazing done. lots of extra material still there causing hinge to not close all the way. Also not brazed back very straight so not really usable IMHO. |
New ones are rather expensive so just wondering if someone had a used one that was still servicable but may need an oversized pin fitted. Since i'll be doing the other 3, what's another one.
Might sound like I'm cheaping out but ever buck counts. just dropped some serious coin on fuel pump and carb parts.
Thanks for any leads you might provide. 53 TD by the way.
|Larry - e-mail me direct at the above address, I think I have what you need. Cheers - Dave|
|While your on this topic. I had a door blow open and bent the bottom hinge. Now the door is difficult to close. How can one safely bend it back without breaking the bronze?|
|Russ - Yes, but it has to be heated quite hot to do so. If you have an old fashioned black smith in your area, I would consult him. Cheers - Dave|
