If Hamer used the same size across the board, I think they're 37.

I just easily fitted a 42 big brass block to an 86 Chap (set neck)...

Do you have the option of taking off the original block and measuring it?  That’s what I did with my Charvel when I replaced the steel block with brass.

Set neck short-scale Chaps are typically not recessed ... I'd go with a 37 for a recessed trem, which I think is the case for all common b/o long-scale Chaps.

I went with a 37 just to be safe ... thanks!  But someday I will have 86 short scale set neck again, oh yes  :)

Jeff R is correct for recessed-trem Hamers.

OK SOOOOOO >>>> the 37mm is the right size but the three holes in the top are a different spacing.  I bought a OFR block and it's a hamer branded  licensed floyd rose .... HELP !!!!

Post picture of the differences... It shouldn't be that far off and if it is, re-drill it... oops sorry, you're talking about the mounting holes not the spring holes huh?... Return it!
