I had 10 21/32" or just a hair over 10 5/8" and the center bolt was not inline but 1/4" offset. Does this make sense?

BUT..I went from upper right ( 2 o'clock) to lower left (8 o'clock) and the distance from the short end 1/4 -20 bolt to the center bolt was 4 1/2" (center to center)


Hope this helps
