  • New Hood Hinges Question

    G'day Bulletbirders,,

    Just got a pair of New aftermarket 61-66 (made in China)
    Hood hinges and was about to fit the springs.

    My question is, what sort of grease/oil is the best to use on these.To prevent wear at the rivets.

    Regards Warren

    Normal engine oil or lithium grease applied at regular intervals. Not too much as it will run over your paint!

    Don't rely on WD40, that will displace what ever lubricant you have already applied. Use that to clean the area around rivets then apply oil or lithium.

        hood hinge grease and bolt question

        Thanks Ian and Graeme,

        One more question , what are the correct bolts to use for the hood to hinge bolts (2 per side )

        And the and the hood hinge attaching bolts (3 per side)
        I'm thinking about buying some under hood hardware with the correct black finish.These are the ones used on the hood latch and catch.

        are all these bolts BOLT BLACK 5/16"-24 x 1" FLANGE HEAD, DOG POINT

        or 5/16-24 x 1 hex head dog point screw with captive conical tooth washer .

        Any help or pics would be greatly appreciated.

        Thanks Again
        Warren

          Hi Warren,

          I used :
          BOLT BLACK 5/16"-24 x 1" FLANGE HEAD, DOG POINT

          but the hood had been off the car before so they may have been changed. Check the trunk bolts, they were the same on my car.
