Servi-car Box

Hallo everyone,
just starting my first project: a 46th servi-car, police. Just trying to get me all the parts that are missing. Got some really good books that helped my e.g. Bruce Palmers´s How to restore Your HD. But in most of the sources the servi are real neglected children. So up till now I was not able to find the parts and parts # belonging to the servi-car box, especially the nuts and other hardware that fix the box to the support frame and the box parts together.
Can anyone help me. Would need a diagramm with the OEM #s.
Thanks in advance.[/list][/i][/b]

Buy a '40-'50 spare parts book. It lists all the parts and their part number.
Only costs {cheap},-

Hallo Jan Willem
Thanks for your quick answer. I bought a spare parts book, already 6 weeks ago. But as I am alway trying to save money I ordered it somewhere in the U.S, very cheap I thought. Did not get it up till now. So its perhaps at least a wasting of time. But still learning day by day. Thanks nevertheless.

Hallo everyone,
just got the spare parts catalog. Real useful stuff. So thanks again to Jan Willem.
But the details I wanted to know are still not covered.
How is the wooden bottom fixed to the box?
What nuts are used to fix the box to the support-frame, what nuts for the lower horizontal reinforcements ( left side and right side ), which nuts to fix the upper shock absorber brackets to the box?
Any idea ( # )?
Thanks in advance
