Default Throttle quadrant measurement needed

To my surprise, my throttle quadrant parts are for a RV8A and not an RV8.
The A is longer but can be shortened and used.

Would somebody please give me the length as shown by the shorter red arrow?

Default RV8 throttle quadrant

Webb, It looks like 5 and 1/16 inches on the red line and 1 and 1/16 inch on the blue circle on my 8.

Thanks. It gives me a good idea of being able to use the longer pieces and Iíll cut to fit when I install.
