WTB 510 door hinges

Recommended Posts

I need to source some door hinges for Cody's car. Three of the four are damaged and missing the springs.

Thanks, Charles

 @PatconWhat years will work and which three are we looking for?

I don't really know which years interchange. I believe the fronts and backs are the same. @zKars I need the lower hinges. The ones with the springs. I believe the existing ones have the scissor bars but I believe the front right one is a newer style. I will try to get some pictures up.

  Pulled some part #s from carpartsmanual.com 1968-1973.

 rear upper rh 82400-21002

 rear lower rh 80420-21004

 spring            80422-73001

 rear upper lh 82401-21002

 rear lower lh 80421-21004

 Check out sgnauto.com. I ran the first two #s. They list the upper hinge for $27.00. Lower hinge is $97.00. I didn't go farther than that. The business appears to be wholesale only. Not an insurmountable hurdle, IMO. Haven't found any on Craigslist yet.

Thanks for the effort. I will follow up on it

Are you in a rush?  I think there are lots of 510 parts in our Z barn.

The car is going to paint jail in about a week. I need to source some for the painter. Not really a rush but I will need them sooner than later. We spent all day yesterday after church stripping the car. That's when I noticed them for the first time

Rats. Too short for me to look. Sorry 😞

When would you be able to check?

Here are pics of what I have

Drivers door - missing the spring - probably salvageable

Drivers side passenger door - missing the spring and the pivot pin is broken. Might be salvageable

Right side rear door - missing the spring and mangled. Might be hard to salvage this one

Front right door - we painted this one. It's complete and seems to function properly

How did you run parts on their site? How would you go about sourcing parts from this wholesaler?

I checked at Courtesy and all of these numbers are NLA. I wonder if sgnauto just has some NLA numbers in their database

 

Any ideas on how to match up the spring? I can probably get the existing spring out but I wouldn't really know how to go about sourcing them.

 I didn't go in the front door. I googled the first part # and added hinge. (82400-21002,hinge) Their site was on the list, clicked on it and the page with that hinge and the price popped up. Mysteriously, there seems to be a Co. in Russia or Ukraine that lists the hinges. Didn't investigate that one.

 The co. in Ukraine?, Russia? is www.diol.ru , if anyone is interested. Genuine Nissan lower hinges, Less than $67.00 US. Were Datsuns sold in the USSR back then? If not, where did the parts come from, if they do have them?

@Patcon Over at 510realm.com, I found a post on repair kits for 510 hinges. NAPA 675-5157. They used the bushings in the kit but not the pins. Hope this helps. Those lower hinges are expensive.

~ 1 month out.

Keep me in mind when you can check.

In the meantime I think I will pursue matching the missing springs. I got the one spring out. It is under a lot of pressure

20190223_193325.jpg20190223_193336.jpg

Free length is 51.4 mm

OD is 27.3 mm

Wire dia 3.25 mm

Don't know on poundage. Can anybody get me going in the right direction?

McMasterCarr.com has a poop load of springs. I've used an inner valve spring on my 4 door, it's close, but actually not stiff enough.

Hey, 

I've got some 510 hinges in a box.  Mine came from sedans.  Are they the same part numbers?   I can take pics for you to see.

I would expect they are the same. I will have to check part numbers. Pictures would be great!

According to car part manual all the lower hinges are the same 2 door, 4 door front and back and wagon

Ok, it looks like I have two rights, a left and a spare spring.  These were from a four door sedan (my first car - RIP!)  Been in storage since 1987.

From left to right above (1, 2, 3...)  This is 1 - passenger side, all good (2 views follow):

This is 2 (note a bolt replaced the pin for the upper mechanism - I never noticed that before and again two views follow):

This is 3: (driver side, and 2 views follow)

So, you need what, a left, and a right, and the spring?
