I have the original garage door in our Lucas Valley Double A frame. It's a single car garage door, roughly 8' wide by 7' tall "slab" door. All of the hardware appears to be original, so we're talking 50 years old at this point.
The pin that attached the spring to one of the bottom brackets snapped, and I can't find any old parts to that would match. It seems relatively simple and I thought a bolt would do the trick, but there appears to be some pretty specific requirements in order to allow it to leave enough space for the attaching hardware to spin around it. The label elsewhere on the hardware indicates model number "Stanley 2731 1/2" and for the first time I ever remember, the Google has failed me and I can't find anyone who sells replacements for this component. I can call the garage door places, but I have a feeling that they're not going to have the part and will want to replace the door with something "current" aka ugly.
Anyone have any ideas for where Ican find a part like this?
