This is a better picture,I cleaned 45+years off my used 1970 nylon bushings .The color is natural
Wow i would never of thought that nylon was used for these....
Was wondering if it mattered where it was built if it got copper or nylon, or if year came in to play. I've replaced many and never ran into nylon. Just wanted to add there are (or were) oversize bushings available, which are good for elongated holes, Just step-drill the hinge till the bushing fits snug. Much better alternative to replacing hinges, especially the weld-on hinges.
So,I wonder if the plastic bushings were a carryover from the first gens,then they realized these new doors were heavier?
My 04B Norwood car had them.
Possibility on the first gen theory.
Anyone know of a source for just the beefier of the brass bushings?
Hi Thesalboy, read the article I posted, it tells you which one to get,
Instead of shelling out for all-new, application-specific hinges, you can purchase a hinge-pin kit for any Chevy square-body pickup and use those to rehab your worn hinges. Second-gen Camaros use a similar hinge pin to the one in the pickup, but with smaller bushings. Simply putting new Camaro hinge pins into an old door usually won’t fix the problem because over time the bushings will spin in the steel hinges and open up the hole. That’s what causes the doors to sag, and just putting in new pins and bushings of the same size won’t solve the issue. Instead, you can ream out the holes in the hinges to accept the larger bushings and square everything back up.
That's pin and bushings. I have pins, and am just looking for bushings. Would cost m $40 to get all the bushings via pin/bushing kit. Cannot be that much $$$ for some bushings.
GIMME BIG BUSHINGS YEAH!
