the only time i have known these hinge pins break is when they seize solid in the hinge due to corrosion.
even if you can get just the pin, the corrosion would normally still be in the hinge, and will eventually cause problems with the new pin.

i would just change the whole hinge, you know that there will be no further problems from that hinge.
