Door Hinge bolt

Removed drivers side door hinge to rebuild it and 3 of the 4 bolts stripped the threads. Thinking I am going to tap the threads. Anyone know the thread size? I picked up son bolts from Brothers Tricks, but the seem to be a coarse thread and looks like mine were fine thread.

Re: Door Hinge bolt

Where does everyone tend to order their hardware from? I've been pretty lucky that this place is close to me and I can either pick it up or it's here the next day. https://www.albanycountyfasteners.com/ But curious what other sites people use. Like I said, this one is simply convenient to me which is why I use them.

I went to Home Depot, when I could not find any 3/8-24 the guy said to check out McFadden Dale hardware. Not sure if its just SoCal, but they had two long rows of bolts. I only needed 3, but figured Id replace them all...

Re: Door Hinge bolt

A standard bolt head is taller than the factory hinge bolt's heads.

Normally you can find the SAE / fine thread bolts at ACE in the drawers above the regular bolt cabinets but will probably get a lot better price at Fastenal or another fastener or a hardware store that caters to commercial accounts. There is a kind of a hole in the wall hardware store about 20 miles from me that has a serious bolt supply at friendly prices. I've been hitting Fastenal for more of the bolts I need outside of the grade 5 I can buy bulk at ACE or get from the machine shop in town.

Cat equipment dealers have a serous supply of grade eight bolts at reasonable prices.

Re: Door Hinge bolt

I am fortunate to have Albuquerque Bolt and Fastener. The 3100 is my second compete disassembly and restoration including all hardware. Every time I go to Albuquerque I stop by here with my list. Generally half the price or less than Home Cheapo and bettter quality. Is nice to be able to walk in to a place that has every possible nut or bolt you could need, and cheaper than anyone online. No minimums like the rest of the “Bolt Only” outlets

while this is absolutely true, the taller bolt head doesnt interfere with anything.
