Swivel tube mount measurements?

This may seem a bit random, but as my engine is bolted tothe swivel tube with a swivel bracket itself also not assisting in the aquisition of a decent measurement, does anyone happen to have either a leg or a swivel assy for a Merc Clamshell 50/60 lying around that they could run a tape over for me?

I have a Yam PT that was going to go under the old 55BE, but as the 55 is now dead I am 98% certain I might persuade it to fit the Clamshell. I probably need a new swivel bracket, but if I'm really lucky it will bolt straight onto the Yam swivel tube, but as the rest of the engine is in the way, I can't get a half decent measurement..... The rough guesses I got from the engine are looking promising, but the leg is preventing the necessary accuracy! (and no, I don't want to take the engine to bits...... )

I need the horizontal spacing of the top & bottom mounts, and their vertical separation. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
