Default Ford door hinge pins

Anyone need to change the ford F series or Bronco truck door hinge pins if so I have the tool for you that I made for repair on old 95 F 250 I believe the pins are the same from 89 to 97 and maybe latter years. I am sure I will never use again so if anyone by chance needs it I can mail it to you. It saves a lot of time especially on the lower hinge that has to be done on the truck. I didn't remove the door. I got to use the hex collet block I made to put the hex on it.

Not sure exactly how this works, but I'm game to give it a go and pass it along to whoever else needs it!

I went out and looked to try and get a better idea what I'm up against, but I've needed to replace the ones in my '92 Bronco for a long while.

What I did was to use blocking and a jack to support the door when it is opened all the way then starting with the bottom hinge------

1 Use a die grinder to grind off the top of the pin and drive it out

2 Unbolt the hinge from the door and rotate it and remove it, you might
have to raise the door to get it out

3 Use the tool to remove and install the new bushings (the lower bushings
are installed on the hinge bracket bolted to the body)

4 Bolt the hinge back on the door and install the new pin. The new pin is
knurled and is very hard to get it to seat in the hinge plate ( I wouldn't
try to get them seated until both new pins are in)

5 The same goes for the top hinge only the hinge bolted to the door has
the bushings. ( there are stops on the top hinge and if you get them in
the wrong spot you won't be able to bolt the hinge back on the door)

PM me your address and I will send it to you

Is 1995 old? My newest vehicle is 16 years older! (my oldest is 77 years older)

You have given me a great idea. For some time I have been concerned about what will happen to my "special" tooling and such when I no longer need it. I dread the thought it may go to scrap if someone could use it. I can use forums like this to give them to the right fellows. I should start soon.

My daily farm driver is a 95 S-10, or is that 96? lol

Both door sets of door hinges on the thing are worn out. The doors sag enough to where I have to pick up on the ends to get them to close.

I bought a two new sets of hinges for both sides, but the originals are welded in place which will see me having to cut out the spot welds to remove them. For that reason, the new pieces have been sitting on the shelf now for about 4 years now.

It's time to fix them darn things.

Nice tooling Dub

Digr makes some nice stuff! I'm still waiting on the pins to show up to actually try it out though. The boy has been all over that old Bronco the past couple weeks and has had some pretty good success. I'm glad his NAPA discount is decent, otherwise I'd be out about $400 compared to the $200 I've already spent funding his playtime.

He's run out of 'basic' stuff to do to it. It's got a bunch of new rubber hoses, vacuum lines, all new fluids, new plugs/wires, a couple bushings, and I'm sure other stuff that I don't know about.

What I'm most excited about though is that he's got it together enough now that I can take it to the gas station and fill it up. Gas prices here hit $1.49 last night. I have a whole bunch of grocery store rewards points saved up--that will bring my price to 49¢ per gallon...
