New Hood Hinges Question
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.
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.
Type of grease to use
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.
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.
