Panel Rear Door Hinge Repair

We removed the rear doors on my kid's '52 panel today. There's a bit of play in one pin otherwise the hinges dont seem too bad. Can new pins be pressed in after the old ones are pressed out? Are the pins special? Anyone have dimensions for the pins? Any other tips appreciated. Thanks.

Chev’s of the 40’s carry these repair kits, although not in stock at this time. They do have the dimensions listed. Here is the link. https://www.chevsofthe40s.com/detai...in_With_Bushings_Back_Door_Suburban.html

Thanks, Phil. I contacted Chevs of the 40s and they don't think they wil ever get them in as "no one's making them now." I may check out Doorman and see if I can match the dimensions

You can try the Filling Station, looks like they might have what you need.

I had to rebuild my barn door hinges and had to re drill the holes on the drill press. I had to go a little oversized and ended "up using hinge pins for a dodge. I used 23/64' diameter hinge pins and cut them down to 2 11/16" long, beveling the end I cut off like original. The ribs at the top of the pin need to be at least 3/8" long and no more than 7/16" long.
