The number I have written down is 152-153 mm. That's for dual circuit 
brakes, regardless of year. It might be different for single circuit 
brakes; I don't know.

This dimension is approximate; the exact dimension was adjusted at 
the factory to make up for tolerance stackup between the body and 
pan, so it's best to not change it unless it's already been tampered 
with. Dave Hall has the plans for the fixture used to set it. If you 
really want to get it right, you'll have to make one of those gauges. 
I keep meaning to do this, but I've never gotten around to it.
