Post Late Libra Door Hinge Adjustment
Does anyone know how the top hinge can be adjusted on the very late Libra revised door hinges that go right through the door?
It looks like there may be an eccentric bush in the door (could it be that easy?) but I'd like to check before I start turning anything.
Cheers.

Not sure if this is late or early?

Thanks. That’s late, the one I have. The drawing makes the threaded nuts at the top and bottom look eccentric but I think I’m going to have to take it to bits to see.

Probably just artists license :)
Because the pins are relatively easy to move about l can't see them going to the trouble of eccentric bushes....
Keep us informed what you find :wink:

The bushes is made from 20mm hex bar with 16mm thread where is goes into the tube cannot remember what pitch but i have the tap at work because is i remade them in aluminium because the steel ones supplied were rather heavy the bush has a 10mm hole and is not eccentric i think you should be able to adjust where to bracket bolts to body if there is some clearance on holes i think the tube is used rather than nuts to keep the top and bottom parallel

Thanks. I did think that eccentric bushes may be a bit sophisticated! When the rain stops I’ll try adjusting the hinge plate on the car.

Do the pegs of 4 & 5 fit direct into 2 & 3, metal to metal as it were?
