Pins to mount Stainless badges

Postby jrappl » Wed May 29, 2024 8:40 am

I have a 55 that has the stainless "McCormick" and "Farmall Cub" badges and the IH hood ornament. Several of the mounting pins have come off the badges. The pins are still in the hood stuck in the barrel nuts. The back of the badges have visible circles where the pins used to be mounted but it's clean and smooth. How were the pins originally attached to the badge? Were they glued? I have a selection of new barrel nuts (classic car nut...), hopefully some the correct size. I was thinking I could epoxy the pins back on and use new nuts after painting the hood.

I could always use SS screws but hate to drill into a perfectly good original badge.

One other question. Some of the background on the "McCormick" is red with the raised letters the stainless. Was that original or a repaint overspray issue?

Another possibility is double sided foam mounting tape, used to mount trim on cars.

That is what I finally did on one of mine...and it's still hanging on! Got it from my friend's body shop. I think pretty much all current emblems on cars are attached this way.

I believe someone previously posted about using either epoxy or JB Weld to reattach some pins. I don't know how it worked out or if it held over time. The red background of the "McCormick" nameplate is correct for a '55.

I use the double sided emblem tape and it has worked for 7 years.

The pins are made of pot metal aka cheap material. Not much you can do with broken pins. I would go with the double stick tape

If you still have the pins, they can be silver solder back in place.

The pins are not broken. The attachment from the factory failed.

Google "emblem retainer clips" and all kinds of options come up.

Push on retainers from hardware store.

The problem is not with retainers, I have barrel nuts and other options. The problem is the pins came off of the emblems. The google search so retainers - I don't need them.

I'm confused. The pins separated from the emblem?

Couple photos to explain the problem.

He's saying they themselves, didn't break...they "broke loose" where they had been attached to the back side of the emblem.
