37 pickup cab/frame spacer support blocks

Recommended Posts

I assume wood blocks with cab to frame bolts passing through them were used at the 2 mounting points on both sides under the cowl.  

Can someone describe them or post a pic of them? 

Thanks.   John

Not sure if this is much help, but here are a few pictures I took for another fellow. The blocks fit in the front corners for the cab between the lower flange and cab floor. The bolts fit through cut-outs in the block, not holes. Do you have a set of these blocks?

OK thanks. This truck came in with freshly made plywood triangular boards in the position shown in the pic. They will have to be replaced.  

It appears that the purpose for them was to add  reinforcement to the cab floor at the 4 cowl to frame brackets bolt holes. 

I can make new ones.      Thanks for the help.       John

Ok Thanks for the pics. I have new wood blocks made and fitted. I believe 3 stiff springs were used at 3 cab mount points but there are 6 cab to frame bolt holes. 

What goes where?   I've seen cab to frame  bolt/spring kits showing 3 long shoulder bolts, 3 springs and 1 short bolt  with flat washers for all. 

Thanks   John

My body guy custom mixed my paint. I don't have a formula. Do you have any grey left to use for color match? If not, I may be able to get you  a sample.
