Cab Door Dovetail:
The cab door dovetail can be adjusted for proper
door alignment by loosening the attaching screws.
When mounting bodies on frames, always place
tight-fitting spacer blocks inside the frame channels at
points where the U-bolts are to be installed. These filler
blocks will support the frame flanges and prevent
bending by the U-bolt.
The filler blocks should be so constructed that they
will be form fitting in the channel and so constructed that
the body U-bolt will rest in a recess in the block to
prevent its loss should the bolt become loose. Fig. 47
illustrates the construction of such a block.

T he mounting holes in the cab hinge pillar are
oversize to permit adjustment of the door to the door
The door lock striker plate mounting holes in the
body are oversize so that the striker plate can be moved
in or out to adjust the door to the door opening seal.
