Jim,
I have some door hinges, they are all used. We might be able to get a set together from the hinges I have. Let me know.

I believe they are both upper hinge for the Sunbeam Alpine (Tiger).

Curious as to whether you were successful in resolving your search for hinges?

While difficult to remove the "pins", they can be replaced!

I found these bushings and also a steel rod (12" lgths) at McMaster Carr.

They are ideal for repairing the Alpine Door Hinges.

Get the pins removed, ream the holes for the bushings, cut the steel rod to correct length and have pressed in and you are as new!

Hi All

I'm a new member based in the UK and own a 1965 Tiger (Photo attached of the car with my Wife)

I'm actually trying to replace worn hinge pins at the moment on my car, but I'm struggling to source these Oilite bush/pin kits in the UK.

Does anyone know if I can purchase them in the UK and if so who from?

Thanks

Gary

Gary, The Source from which I get them here in the US is McMasterCarr ..... if you can't find them in the UK? I'd be happy to purchase the bushings for you and send to you.

I can check on the current cost for enough to do your hinges and maybe shipping and any other added cost that is require by the Brits....

Send me an e-mail with your mailing address/contact info and I will get back asap.

Not sure if you got my message, thanks for the kind offer but I think I've sourced some bushes via a UK Supplier on E-Bay?

I already have some 5/16" Diameter hardened steel rod so should be able to sort it.

Can you tell me if you reamed the holes in the Hinges for the bushes yourself?

I would have thought this was a specialist Engineering job with having to keep the holes in line.
