Need either rebuilt hinges or pins/ rebuilding kits. Does anyone know any sources to get any.

When I was looking last summer all the vendors had the brass bushings but not the pins. You can reuse your original pins...if they're not bad with new bushings. At that time Kennedys shelf stock of rebuilt hinges was nada because his source for the pins went under. Maybe something for the positive has changed since then. Good luck...check ebay regularly...occasionally they do pop up there.  Wink

I use GM pins and bushings. You'll have to drill the hinges oversize for the bushings, the pins may need to be cut. Not hard to do, readily available, and IMHO the larger pins and bushings are an upgrade.
