Well, we've been over the topic of door straps repeatedly... how to replace, what to buy, what the little clips are for... etc..... BUT - I can't find a darn thing in the archives about the little piece on the door that holds the clevis pin.....

My driver's door is missing that clip.... and I can't find it for the life of me online, diagrams be darned......

Am I relegated to attaching a flat hinge pin to the outside of the door panel?

The clevis is made up of the tongues of plates welded above and below the opening internal to the door. The clevis is, therefore, not a readily replaceable part.

One of my 69's door's is missing the upper tongue. It succumbs to fatigue after many cycles and the tongue fractures off.



Best,

Paul

I have a couple more if needed. I found they same thing, NLA everywhere or just not listed They will be simple to reproduce. The two halves I show here easily came off the inside of the door but tapping on the end of the broken loop. You may be able to see that the spot welds were not very well done.

Mine were kaput as well. I had the door off so I just made a couple of 90 degree brackets and attached then on the outside of the door.

I think in the long run you will want them inside as the originals are. That door skin is double thick there so it will take a lot of banging open without damaging things, other than fasteners or the end of the hole. And it is simple to do.
