If they are working, I agree- you can just live with them for a time.
But switching to the current Scamp
hinges would probably be the best long-term solution. When you are ready to do that, member Ian G. has determined that the best placement of the hinges is at 1/3 and 2/3 of the door height. That puts them a little closer to the widest part of the trailer and allows the door to open fully without hitting the belly band. Since you will probably have to make new holes and patch the old anyway, this would be the time to do it. Ian polished and reused the original 2-bolt Boler
hinges, but the 3-bolt Scamp
hinges work the same.
Here is a link to Ian G's renovation thread
. In the signature at the bottom of Ian's posts is a link to his website, which has much of the information in the thread in more concise form. Lots of great information about Bolers. BTW, Ian also sells a rebuild kit for Boler and Scamp hinges
that uses higher quality materials than the originals. It includes the ball, spring and bolt.
