Default Mustang 8.8 in my '39 Chevy RatRod - Mounting Dimensions

Good evening gentleman,

I'm currently building myself a '39 Chevy RatRod. I've designed a 4-link that has top mounting points surprisingly close to the exact same position of the mustang 8.8, which is awesome! I've been scouring the internet and cannot find the SPECIFIC dimensions of the mounting points.

All of my questions pertain to the UPPER mounting points attached right to the cast center section.I've attached some photo's to try and make it easier to see the dimensions that I'm looking for, but it basically boils down to this:

1.) Horizontal distance from axle centerpoint to upper mounting centerpoint
2.) Vertical distance from axle centerpoint to upper mounting centerpoint
3.) Angle from the axle that the mounts are offset (appear to be 55-60°?)
4.) Inner Diameter of upper mount
5.) Width of the casting (~1/2"?)

I know some of these measurements would be hard to get, even with the axle out of the car, so even general numbers would be a great help! I'm most interested in #3: the angle that the mounts sit.
