Replacing and OFR trem block

First of all thanks to everyone on this site for helping me with info on replacing my TRS trem. I decided on and OFR and after a couple of financial setbacks I finally purchased a used one off E(vil)Bay. It's in good condition but when I went to install it I discovered that it has the long block (42 or 44 mm , I forget the exact measumement). I understand that these can be changed out but it requires disasembling the trem itself. No problem, I'm sure I can find an afternoon to do it. My question is where can I get a shorter block? And what size do I need? I'm using it in an S370 and the TRS had a 35mm block.

if you have junk trems laying around you can use them...i installed an OFR in my RG and notcied it was too long.....the rg had a LO-TRS II in it and i disassembled the lo-trs and used its block in place of the original one on the OFR works like a charm now.

hope that helps

TRS and OFR blocks are interchangeable, but different from any Edge type. Mighty Mite sells the blocks by themselves and I'm pretty sure they're short. They'd be the same block as a Lo-TRS.
