Spinning Wheels..Never got my part

I ordered a hinge kit 5-6 weeks ago from them and still haven't recieved it, I called and talked to a older guy right before they were leaving for NJ for some family thing and he said he would take care of getting my part to me when they came back....now the page has said for over a week now that they're internet is down....anyone had any problems with these guys? I'm not real happy about not getting my part, need to fix my door.

Theres ALWAYS a smart ass around here...guezz

He's a good guy. Stay in touch with him. He'll get it to you. Sorry about the delay. Yea, I've dealt with him in the past - never had a problem. I'm surprised you waited 5-6 weeks before contacting him about your order.

When you do get the kit just use the bushings, hinge pin and striker bolt. Do not replace the plastic roller. The ones in those kits are crap. Just leave the original one in place. It will be fine. The bushings are the only thing that needs to be replaced.

I wrote an update, based on my experience, to the MN12 hinge rebuild How-to HERE.

Hope this helps.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. FusionŽ Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)

I called them after 3-4 weeks, its been 5-6 since ordered. Thanks for the info on the roller. Guy I talked to was real nice but I never heard back from them, I'll call them again at the end of the week.
