There are 2 kinds, the forged or cast hinges used on prewar cars....

Just a clarifying note - the pre-war hinge pictured is neither cast nor forged but made of steel stampings, it is bushed and has a provision for lubrication. Picture from the 1934 Service Letters.

The prewar kind need to be reamed oversize and an oversize pin used to take up wear.

EDIT - Depends I suppose on year and whether Junior or Senior, but many pre-war seniors don't require reaming and oversize pins, just new bushings if the lubrication has been neglected.
