Is it the width at those heights?toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

The dimensional data in the attached image doesn’t make sense to me. I tried to puzzle it out using the ORER, but no luck. Obviously I have a wrong assumption somewhere. Here’s my thinking and you can tell me where I’ve gone wrong:
EX. W 10 – 5 is the Extreme Width of the car. It’s the widest point of the car. H. 13-1 is the Extreme Height of the car. It’s the highest point on the car (over the running board or brakewheel).
E.W. 9-4 is the Eave Width of the car. It’s how wide the car is at the eaves, so one will know if it’ll clear a canopy on a loading dock. H. 14-0 is the height of the car at the eaves, again so that it can clear a canopy.
How can the Eave Height be 14-0, which is greater than the Extreme Height of 13-1? Obviously I’ve misunderstood something, but what?
BTW, the ORER gives the “Height, To Extreme Height” as 14-8. So what, then, is the “H 13-1” next to the EX. W??
I don’t think it’s a stencilling error, as I see a similar discrepancy on a UP A-50-21.
Thanks for your help,
