Bell housing bolt hole dimensions

I'm putting a ZF 5 speed in my F150 that originally was in a F250 5.8. I'm picking it up on Saturday. Before I walk away with it, I'd like to meausre and make sure they are not sticking me with a 460 or diesel sized transmission. I don't have a spare block or bell around and would like to know the dimensions acoss for the 6 bolt holes. See picture for dimensions A, B & C. These dimensions are for a small block 5.0 or 5.8. Does anyome have these readily available?


Thanks!

Thanks but no. I need the dimensions in the picture. I just want to make sure the salvage yard has a SBF pattern on the ZF trans and not a 460 or diesel pattern.

B= 13 1/2"
C= 16"

No problem.

I live further west in Huntingdon counter, nearer Altoona and State College.
