Door hinge disassembly

So is it possible to remove the pin from the door hinges on a 1997 D-90?

I am wanting to take them apart and potentially repair the hinges and paint properly etc..

On that note has anyone removed the pin on worn out hinges and installed a brash bushings of sorts to essentially repair the hinge?

I have tried to remove the pin with a couple hits with a hammer and no budge yet.

Any help would be great!

Thanks

Tyler

They will drive out, but older ones can be very difficult.

Here's a link to a repair idea http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=39388

Thanks Tony. Thanks as well for the link. Nice idea of a repair job. Not sure I will go to that extreme. I am hoping to drive out the pins and find a brass bushings that (hopefully) fits the original pin well and rebuild them plastic washers between the halfs like the new style hinges.

We shall see.

On your link it says to drive the pins out from the bottom. Wonder if that makes a difference. I will try it. Got nothing to loose as my hinges are pretty shot.

You definitely want to drive them out from the bottom, toward the top of the hinge. They have a taper.

Let us know how it goes Tyler...may want to try. My hinges are tight, however, I would like to separate, paint, and install Teflon washers so they stop bleeding…installed stainless hardware throughout several years ago.
