'40 Ford Pickup cab mounts
 
Anyone have a picture of the cab mounts on one of these pickups. I have a set of mounts made out of hardwood that came with this truck, along with about two hundred boxes of parts. I'm trying to establish the cab height over the frame in relation to the front fenders, hood, and rear box height.

A fellow told me that Ford used a wood mount in that year, must of shook the hell out of that poor truck. Would prefer to use a rubber mount of the correct height,

Anyone working on this type of truck? Thanks

the wood is correct for that truck, but may also have a thin strip of rubber under it

Were the box mounts hardwood or rubber? Any idea on height?

they all where wood & on my 47 ford p/u (same cab) i believe they were 2 inches thick and if there is rubber it would go too the frame

Thanks for the info Cliff. I finally settled the cab on to the frame at a height that I can live with. Put a set of original wood mounts in with a rubber donut on top to absorb some vibration. I think they will work slick. Thanks for the input.
