Does anyone know the spacing of the bolt holes on the top plate for the m35a2 winch? I had a new one made based off my old, bent up one but I'm not sure if they got the hole spacing correct. It seems a little short when I try to assemble. I have to assume that the spacing is fairly critical to proper alignment of the two ends on the shaft. The straightest part of my original part is about 15 7/8" center to center on the holes. My new part is about 1/8" shorter. I'm worried about the two ends not being "square" to each other. Am I just overthinking it?

Thank you for the drawing. According to that, I'm only off by +/- 1/16". Might just have to keep wiggling everything around to get it all together. It sure is nice having access to a winch expert just a few clicks away!
