When the commander (0-5)is out and the acting commander on assumption of command orders signs DA 31 for PTDY who’s signature block goes in the approving authority spot? The BC signed by the acting commander or the acting commanders signature block and his signature.

Acting Commander with assumption of command orders attached. Authority is in the position, not the rank.

Excellent question. I'd send it with the acting commander, and attach the Assumption of Command papers to the DA 31. Worst thing that'll happen is it gets kicked back, and I don't think it's the right answer to put in one person's block followed by a hand scrawled "signed by (illegible squiggle)."
