Frame to body blocks
« on: February 04, 2020, 10:27:58 AM »
Is there a source for the body to frame mounting blocks for the 30-U?  If not, what are you using?

I canít help you I have a 29u. The 30u had an all steel body.  The 29 is wood framed with steel skins.  Iím sure someone will chime in.

Any luck finding a solution.  If these blocks are rubber they can be revulcanized.

No luck so far but I did order a thick, flat piece of dense rubber that I will try to shape into pads.  What I have is barely enough for patterns but I think I know where they need to be.  Since my car has an all steel body I am assuming the pads are not as critical for shimming the body as they are on a wooden frame body.  I guess I will find out soon enough.

Do you have a picture of the blocks and what model of 30 are you working on?

They are not blocks but rubber pads.  I only have one that I will try to attach a picture of and I do not know how many were used or exactly where they were located on the frame.  My car is an early 30-U rumble seat coupe.

I think there are 4 pads on each side, attached are photos from June 1930 coupes,  I have wood rails and pads.  the bottoms of the wood rails are shown and show the "shadows" of 4 pads on each side.  the frame shows the hole the detail is for,  the detail shows the bolt, nut, a rectangular steel washer, the frame, the pad, the wood rail and the body at the top.  Hope this helps.
