Rebuilding hoog hinges.

I was rebuilding the door hinges on the Mustang a couple of week ago.

The pin that holds the spring assy. to keep the door locked in the open position wasn't too bad to get it out. The other was being a nightmare. No other way to do it except pull it out. This pin has probably been in there since new. It was really locked into it's place. It said No way to being pulled out. Then, I remembered a trick that was shown me years ago.

Weld a bolt that the head is the same size as the pin head to the pin head. Place a good strong washer that will just fit over the pin and bolt. Now, Take a hollow metal piece (I used hollow rod) that will just fit over the pin and bolt and sits on the washer. Put another washer on top of the rod. You have to leave some threads showing to get the nut started. Now, Take a socket and ratchet and screw the nut onto the bolt cranking it down, As you turn the bolt it will pull the pin out.

Hope Y'all can understand my explanation. And hope this helps in the future..

Weld to the pin itself then put something that will go over this (deep well) then put a bolt on the threaded part, tighten it down and the pin comes right out.
