I assume you are asking about a router guide bushing, although this question was filed under chain saws. The guide bushing size has to correspond to the bit size to get the right size cutout for the hinge template. Here's a set: http://www.grizzly.com/products/Brass-Bushing-10-pc-Set/H3134
Good luck, Al K

How to remove door bushings


The only door bushings I am aware of are the ones on the hinge pins. Correct? If not, please clarify what you mean.
New pins come with new bushings, and the hinges are welded on so the pins are pretty much the only items replaceable. Not a fun job - because of the door stop springs you will need a spring compressor, and you will also need a special tool to drive out the old pins. However, both are available from a parts store or Amazon.
Just open the door and support it from the bottom, and then go for it, one pin at a time - for the upper pin, compress and remove the small spring, drive out the old pin, drive in the new pin and put the spring back. No spring on the bottom hinge - just replace the pin.

Lost instructions for plastic hinge jig


This is a home owner's jig for mortising **** hinges, It will not do production runs , that's for sure. It has to be layed out to start, but great for cutting one door. Do you have the router guide for it? Your hinge sticks out of the door on the side that it swings on, and it leaves about 1/4 inch of door on the other edge, the top and bottom are measured from the top and bottom of the door and you have to figure the thickness of the guide and make a test run on a scrap. The depth should be flush with the hinge. The standard way of measuring is, 7 from the top, 11 from the bottom and center in between the 2, they don't do that anymore, they just slap them in a pre-hung jig that mortises upside down, backwards, up, down, doesn't matter. all the same now days, only problem is you can't get a punch under the hinge to pop out the hinge pin if you have to. The card you have might have the dimensions on it for holding off the line. Hope this helps.

DRIVER DOOR IS SAGGING


The first thing you need to do is to check the hinge pin bushings to see how worn they are. S-10s/Jimmys are notoriously bad on hinge pin bushings and hinges, and after a while, will droop slightly. The top pins are usually the worst. Look at where the pins go through the hinge. Can you see a cracked/worn/missing/misshapen bushing in there? These usually only lasted a couple of years, so likely it is so. The next thing to look for, is if the hole is oblong or egg-shaped or not. If it is, you're looking at some welding work on the hinge, or replacement. You may be able to get away with using a putty like qwik-steel in conjunction with new bushings to fix it if you want to stay on the cheap. New bushing/pin kits are available from most auto parts stores, and normally cost in the neighborhood of 7-10 dollars. The pins are fairly easy to remove and replace, with the hinge spring being the most difficult part of it. You can leave it out if you wish, but to reinstall it requires a special tool(another $8) to compress it and get it back where it needs to be. To remove the hinge pins, use a brass punch and a hammer, and tap down on the end of the pin until it is flush with the top bushing. Do the same for the bottom one(I think you tap up on that one if I remember correctly, but it will be obvious). You will then want a partner and something to support the door on when it comes loose. Lift on the door, while prying the pin the rest of the way out with whatever makes you comfortable. A pair of needle-nosed vise grips works perfectly for this. The pins will come out, and you pull the door away slightly, have your partner hold it, while you install the new bushings. Once the new bushings are in place, you can reinstall the door. I like to put the pins in upside down, so I know they won't work their way out while in use, but it's entirely up to you. One note of caution. When tapping out the top pin, your hammer will be dangerously close to your windshield. Be accurate with your hammer, or your hinge pins will cost you another $180 with the cost of a new windshield.

How to replace door hinge pins?


Have an assistant to aid you, or pad the ears of jackstands with rags to help aid supporting the door. You will need to take the weight off the door hinges to drive the pins and bushing out. Also, take $12 to NAPA - I forget the part number, but there is a door spring compressing hand tool that will make the job easier and SAFER. Remove the spring with the tool, covering over the spring and tool head with a rag to protect yourself in the event of the spring popping up and back at you - it *can* happen.

With the spring removed and door supported, drive ONE pin out. Do same with the brass bushings. Press the bushings in with a simple jig made of washers and a long bolt w/matching nut - do not tap them in with a hammer. Then, repeat same on other pin. When both pins and sets of bushings have been replaced, use compression tool to reload the spring into the retainer inside the door frame hinge area.

Rank amateur may be able to complete one door in half an hour by himself, easy fix!

How do I adjust the door of my Chevy S-10 truck to tighten the seals and reduce the wind noise


The first thing you need to do is to check the hinge pin bushings to see how worn they are. S-10s are notoriously bad on hinge pin bushings and hinges, and after a while, will droop slightly, causing your wind noise. The top pins are usually the worst. Look at where the pins go through the hinge. Can you see a cracked/worn/missing/misshapen bushing in there? These usually only lasted a couple of years, so likely it is so. The next thing to look for, is if the hole is oblong or egg-shaped or not. If it is, you're looking at some welding work on the hinge, or replacement.

When tapping out the top pin, your hammer will be dangerously close to your windshield. Be accurate with your hammer, or your hinge pins will cost you another $180 with the cost of a new windshield. Once this is complete, you can reassess your door adjustment needs. If you still need the adjustment done, then you will want to take it to a body shop where they'll bend the necessary parts of the door. With worn hinge pins, the adjustment doesn't do you any good. Hope this is what you're after.

I have a chevy s10 and i need help to fix the door hinge and bushing. do i need a special tool? thanks michelle


I had an Isuzu with the same problem(they are the same car) have you made sure that the bushing is available,some hinges have hinge pins that
are rounded on both ends ans can't be removed without a grinder(this should be left to a pro) if it is a straight pin you can use a punch and hammer to take it apart,or you can replace the whole hinge(which I did)
Hope this helps a little
