Toni:

This has come up before. The pins were never available separately, you must buy a replacement hinge. Since the hinges are welded, this doesn't help very much. No one, to my knowledge, sells them separately.
You will need to obtain some suitably sized bar stock, and fabricate your own. Sorry, I know that is not much help.

Perhaps someone else has more current information, and will chime in.

Pin diameter is standard size. I think 5/16, but you will need to measure. Buy at auto parts store and cut to length. May have fallen out because hole in hinge elongated. Weld a washer on. Lube pin. Install pin and spot weld to washer. Won't come out now.
