Body Blocks

Post by dlevy » December 21st, 2020, 3:17 pm

Hi
Does anyone know if the wood blocks used on the 1931 82A pickup cab will work on the 131” AA Chassis?
I cannot seem to figure out how they fit.
Thanks
Dave

Dave, FYI - For 1931 (actually July 1930 - 1932), the 82-B closed cab was used for both the A and AA chassis. The cab original body blocks fit either chassis. Sorry, I don't have a diagram for locations. But, I found the image below on VFF (might help).
