need new pins on the orphan fridge door

i am wondering if anyone knows a hard way to replace the pins in the door hinge? i know the really, really hard way that actually destroys the hinge, and i have never seen new ones so i am gonna try to repin a pair i saved off the old parts truck. i have thought about puncturing a can of wd40 , putting it in a bowl and soaking them for a few weeks. also thought about soaking them in atf. i could just spray them everyday for a month or so but i would really like to submerge them in something so i can walk away from them for a few weeks. just trying to make it easier when i get them in the press. hopefully it wont destroy the hinge this time.

You can buy wd-40 in a gallon jug rather than popping an aerosol can open. Instead try a 50/50 mix diesel and atf, works good on loosening up rust.

Another option is Evapo-Rust. Will remove every last spec of rust, then you can repair and paint it easily. About $10 a bottle last time I bought some and it should be enough to do both hinges and more.

You could also try something like CLR. (calcium, lime, rust remover)

thanks for the ideas. now that you say wd40 in a gallon jug i remember seeing those. thats probably safer than busting open a can. i have never heard of diesel and atf, might try that first just to see how good it works. thanks again. i will probably wait for it to snow so i can drive it around without the doors to keep the neighbors on their toes.

yea, im gonna soak them for a good long time and hopefully get them out without the heat. that will be option two. Bill, i assume those are new nos hinges and not just the pins, i might have to see what they want for them. also didnt know you could flip them right to left by taking out the pin. i did read that right didnt i?
