I'm having a problem finding the door part that holds the door "check" in place on the "A" pillar. Any thoughts of what others are doing? I thought about using a "clevis" pin

Your thoughts.


Thanks in advance

Yeah but if you really want to get technical about it, you should have this setup holding the door check to the bracket on the body according to the original parts catalog - see below .... so a Pointed Head Hex bolt 1/4" x 5/8" UNF (HU705/P) (BTW, the Brits call it a "Setscrew" but to us it is a bolt) with a 1/4" x 0.49" OD spring washer (WL0207) and a Hex nut 1/4" UNF (HN2007)

FWIW I forget exactly the cutoff between a setscrew and a hexbolt but I believe it has to do with the length and amount of threading

or perhaps it's just to me a bolt is a bolt is a bolt ... I guess for someone more technical this is the difference



The Difference Between A Bolt And A Set Screw:

The Bolt: The Bolt is characterised as with out a full thread (i.e the thread does not reach the head), this part is known as the Shank. Bolts are generally not available in the shortest lengths as there is no room for the shank, and typically you will receive a Set Screw in place of a Bolt. The Bolt allows for movement.
The Set Screw: The Set Screw is characterised as with a full thread (i.e the thread reaches the head). Used to prevent relative motion (no movement).
