Need door hinges, Boler or Scamp

Starting a resto/mod on a '69 Boler and the door hinges are in poor shape, would like to switch to the "newer" style hinges or Scamp hinges.

Let me know what you have and what you want for them, pics are always nice.

Thank you,
Al

I'm assuming you mean exterior door hinges? I have cabinet door hinges, only mention it in case my assumption is in error.

Hello Al

If your boler is a '69 it should have the cast aluminum hinges, I have only seen a few original 1968 with the bent steel hinges. If you do have the cast aluminum hinges I have the rebuild kits for them, and if you can save them that is the best, the casting quality if the recent Scamp hinges I have seen are quite poor.

Exterior/entry door, yes.

It has the stamped hinges and was registered as a '69. SN 164. Same hinges I saw on a '68 at the '04 Bolerama in White City.....I think it was '04....

Looking for cast door hinges, would like nice usable ones, but have a family member with a home foundry and machine shop... so even broken ones could be of use.

Hi Al

Where in Alberta do you live? I am in Calgary.
There is a fellow in Langdon who brings up Scamp parts and resells them on Kijiji. He does have hinges and unfortunately they are the only available choice. The problems I have been seeing with the Scamp hinges are poor and inconsistent machining but more worrisome they appear to be ignoring that the upper and lower hinges are different (hinge stamped #1 is the lower hinge and hinge #2 is the upper hinge) they have been sending customers hinges numbered the same which means one hinge is angled incorrectly.

Am closest to Camrose.. (Big Valley Jamboree)

Have been in touch with the fellow selling the Scamp hinges. I intend to look around for a bit first...would still prefer the actual Boler hinges.
