Need tailgate hinges and hardware(evrything needed to install a tailgate) for 1974 Short bed P/U.
I have these for an 86. Would it be the same?
have a 74 lwb chevy i'm parting out let me know if you need anything else
The hinges from an 86 are different. The only parts I need are the tailgate hinges at this point.I'll let you know if I need anything else.
I have a pair of hinges off of a 74 or 79 dont recall the year. I think I used the pivots, I would have to check.
Those are the parts.How much do you want for everything?
$20 shipped and Ill check on the pivots tonight.
Sounds good.Let me know.
Yeap just as I thought, hinges only, the pivots I used to hold my bedsides on.
So all you have is the hinges?
correct, the hinges in the picture. The other pieces got used.
Okay.Thanks anyway. Anybody else have all the pieces that are pictured above?
I think you should double check, I'm pretty sure the later ones will fit both an older gate and the truck. Good luck.
OH I came across another setup yesterday while cleaning. Ill get a pic later today.
The newer set uo does not work. I aready had them. The 73-80 tailgates are different from the 81-87's.
In another couple of posts while trying to figure this out for myself, the consensus was that the hardware must match tailgate, but either setup pre or post 80 will work.
Heres the pair that I found over the weekend. From a 79 blazer.
