    Default door alignment.

    I guess you can always tell the new guy by all of the crazy questions. Has anyone had any experience with alignment of the drivers side door. the rear of the door is about a 1/2 inch down by the lock assembly. I removed the two plates and tried to loosen and ajust the hinges but it only moved the door in and out and not up and down. Thanks again for your assistance. Cuz Vinnie

    Sagging of the doors may indicate worn bushings and/or pins. It's not the location of the hinges, it could be the actual condition of the hinges. John

    You'll find a description of the door alignment in the shop manual or the restorer's guide.

    Those hinges were never strong enough for such a humongous door... especially now 60 years worth of sagging. If your door ever is stuck shut roll your hydralic jack under the door and raise the side of the car several inches...voila door opens.

    Holger thank you very much for the enlightening photo. This will help a lot. Where can I get this shop manual or restores guide. I already have a shop repair manual but it does not show the door alignment. While we are at it, is there a manual for the factory Air Cond. system and something about the cabin center control cables. Thanks Vin
