thanx 3 piece

that is good info.

looks like we are going to have to try the NOS hinges after all.

the guy at shop fitting the driver door says.....

when he gets it to latch the rear of door is 1/2" out at the end striker is on

if he removes new door weatherstrip ( universal type, not OEM with corners )

the door shuts a lot better but still in a bind the closer you get to closing it.....

this truck was abused on the farm for over 40 years

taken completely apart, blasted, etc..... I guess with all that, things get tweaked, etc.

wish us luck on the NOS hinges solving the problem.

Iam going to be a pest and ask again, are all j10 door hinges the same over the years ?
