Thumbs down Replacing an oil furnance damper

I have an oil furnance that I believe has a malfunctioning damper. One of the areas where it pivots no longer has a pin in it and instead there is an old nail. I'm lost, how would I go about replacing this? Do i need just a new pin, or the whole damper assembly?

Welcome to the DIY Forums

I'd replace the entire damper unit, and know that is is functioning correctly. Remove the old one and take it with you. Be sure to shut off the heat while you have the damper removed.
