I have 16" vertical fiber board now with 2" x 3/4" wide ceder boards
vertically covering the joints. Can I just nail the the siding to the
ceder boards? Present siding is in reasonable shape and tight. I
will fir out the window and other openings. Vinyl is .42" lap D4.

that method of fastening vinyl to 'furring strips' was/is a
recommended method under Canadian Building Standards.
Possibly to provide an air space under the siding for better
ventilation of moisture that may come through the walls of buildings
not equipped with adequate vapour barriers on the inside (warm) side
of the walls?
However some experience here indicates that high winds can get under
the siding and in some case have removed whole sections, tearing it
off the furring! Trying to replace and match the right colour of
several year old possibly manufacture discontinued siding can be very
difficult. Impression now is that is, here anyway, now not favoured.
If you have a calm location probably work OK.
Of course what global warming is doing to every ones climate is an
unknown. You can now swim in the Arctic! Snow in Florida? Great Lakes
have dropping water levels, polar ice caps melting, more hurricanes/
tropical storms, rising seawater and higher tides due to more wind
