Closed cab hinges

Post by Apple Truck » May 23rd, 2015, 8:40 am

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone
I need some picpures of the door hinges that go on the doors. Mine have been bent to adjust the door at sometime in the past. I would like to get them back to the proper shape before i start assembling the truck. A top view is what i need. Cant be sure witch ones are bent and witch ones are good.
Thank you all

Thanks Brian
Your pics show a little of what i need. the ones in question are the ones that go on the door. The one that goes on the piller is in the way on your pics. if someone has a picture of just the one that goes on the door it would be a big help.
Thanks

Ford used two types of hinges, pretty much randomly, on the 1928-29 pickups and trucks. Theses were a carryover from 1926-27 (though the upper hinge may have been bent differently in the steel 1927), and also a carryover design from 1924-25.

The type you have is stamped one piece for the body (with a solid rolled section for the pin) and for the door. We make a replacement in cast gear bronze (www.wescottsauto.com), available direct and Snyders, and other dealers do sell them.

The second type had a two splines (around the hinge pin) on the body and 3 splines on the doors, with a stamped cover. The spline pattern interchanges to the roadster hinges used 1926-1931 though the roadsters did not use the cover.

Interestingly enough I have seen these on several Naughtafords, including a 1934 Reo rear door.

Karl Wescott,
Your link is just to your site home page. Why not give the exact link to the hinges you are referencing and save everyone some time. I could not find the hinges on your site.
