1978 boler 1700 door hinges

Does anyone know where I could buy replacement hinges for the entrance door? I have seen that scamp sells a door hinge, however one side of the hinge has three holes for bolts. Will these work? Also looking for a porch light.
Thanks
Dennis

I'm not sure what hinges are on your 1700, if like the other bolers you may get away with just replacing the balls and springs.

Thanks for the link.
When facing the trailer the top of the door is to far to the left making it not square to the opening. Are both hinges the same dimensions? Or is one shorter? Looking at the mounting hardware It appears at some point the the hinges have been replaced. The body is intact so the hinges are off a boler. It would make sense to me if the upper hinge would have a shorter swing arm.

Posting a picture of what you have may help someone answer your question. Original top and bottom boler and scamp hinges differed. (different numbers stamped into them)

Hint: It is usually best if you keep all your related questions to one thread.

Those are stock boler hinges. I would try the ball kit first. Also available in Canada:

The hinges may also have shifted a bit over the years. You can take them off and see if the holes have elongated. Easy fix with tech steel putty or similar.
