Default Drawing needed for torque plate

Machine shop is making me a torque plate. As I'm too lazy to measure it myself, does someone have a drawing showing the head stud, and cylinder bore locations?

I'm in Canada, so shipping is $$. This machine shop does a lot of work for me, so they're making it for me basically free.

Can someone confirm the head studs are all an equal 91mm apart?

Haha. Well, the reality is the machine shop said they could start it today if I give them the measurements, and I don't have an engine here at work to measure.

I was thinking the same thing myself, but I gave up mid thought and took a nap.

It simulates what bolting on the head would do to the block. You use this while boring the cylinders.
