I removed the door as it was sagging, so needs a hinge repair job, but it seems the sockets that the balls sit in are worn, and I cannot remove the hinges from the body. if I have to I will grind a slot into them and try a slotted driver, but thought I would ask here 1st.
also where can I get a replacement set. in the vancouver / lower mainland bc area. or are there any mods out there.

Steve the Boler hinges themselves are not a direct replacement with the Scamp hinge, but some have had success using them. Pair Of Outside Door Hinges. Be aware Scamp calls a pair both sides of one hinge... so you'd need to order two pair! The Scamp hinge is a three bolt vs the two bolt Boler. So, if the Boler hinge is in good shape, the guts for pivoting are replaceable: Door Hinge Repair Kit (Brass Ball, Spring, Nut & Bolt). I've read on Bolerama that it's suggested to replace the bolt with one made of stainless steel.

Now I gotta go look at your pics!
