Thats great.I think the way you did it is better.Looks beefier.
now that's what i call using your head. i ran into similar thing replacing window rollers on b bodies. a cheap cutlass part is $4, a new regulator is over $100!
yeah I wish I had found this out before I bought a set of hinges on Ebay! Then when I got them the drivers roller was messed up! So I bought another set but made sure the rollers were good! Guess I'll Blast and prime them all and rebuild them and sell the other 2 sets or save them for my next project! I had just found out today before finding this thread that the rollers were on a press fit pin! At least now i know what parts I need to fix them!
Thanks for the write up!!
Older thread great info. the parts are in stock at my Chevy dealer. I am going to pick them up at lunch time today and will provide some feedback. I love it when people come up with easy, creative, functional work arounds!
Does the roller have to completely roll free? I did this on my hinges and the roller pin must be slightly binding. The roller rolls free when I do it by hand, but I feel a slight drag, is this critical to the operation of the hinge?
I did not notice any issues. I did this awhile back BUT my car has spent the last year being blocked and painted so I have not used it a while lot.
The only friction you should feel is that from the plastic bushing. The roller won't be able to free spin on its own, but it should turn easily by hand.
Thanks! Well, that's what it does, not spinning wildly on it's own, but it does turn easily by hand. I backed out the pin just a tad and it made all the difference in the world. Now on to the second set!
Hey man, great Post. I need to change my detent roller pin.
I know your post is old but is there any chance you or somebody else could repost the rest of the pictures??
