Does anybody know anything about the mounting of the cab on a 1942 Dodge pickup cab? There is suppose to be one bolt, on the left front, bolted down to the frame, then the other three bolts have springs and spacers between the cab and the frame. How much space is there between the body and frame? Is there a wood spacer there or rubber? My is all rotted out and I'm not sure what I need to replace it. I think your suppose to level the cab using the spacers, am I right?Thank you.

Dave, On the 42 I restored I mounted the running boards in their proper place, installed the small rubber cushions in the lower edge of the cab below the doors and made blocks that positioned the cab so that the rubber cushions just made contact with the top surfaces of the running boards. Be sure to use the proper dimension wood blocks that fit in the running board brackets. JW
