new section!

Through the years we have had some great tips and or tricks that have been lost through the paperwork.

Bill made one the other day that was very useful, I'm proud in the name of the board, to make my friend the first tip to be on the board!

I'd like all of you guys to remember the past and future tip or your favorite "trick" be added to this section. Thanks to Mark for setting this up for us!

New entry

I remembered a way when working on door hinges on Especially with older vehicles.
I rebuild hinges instead of buying new.

There is a couple of pins that have no way to pull out, they come into play with the pieces that connect the spring to hold the door open. You'll know the piece I'm referring to when you have the hinge in front of you.

I take a 3/8ths bolt and weld its head to the pin head on the hinge. Take a deep well socket or any round hollow piece and slip it over the bolt push it down on the hinge until it hits the washer. You will need the bolt you welded on to have threads long enough to be higher than the socket. Put a nut on the bolt. As you tighten the nut you will be pulling the pin out of the cast hinge. Works terrific and no need to heat the hinge to pull it out..

I was rebuilding the hinges on the Mustang a couple days ago and broke one of them, with that It made me remember this old proven trick.

Hope this helps someone in the future.
