I didn't find that drawing earlier but here it is. It shows 3 holes at the top right. Does look to be the same with the exception of the ball position. McMaster seems to be more outwards at .83" than the RedLine shown in the photo following the McMaster drawing.





This is the photo of the RedLine product; they don't show a measurement for the protrusion of the 10mm ball however by eyeball it seems to be less.

I dont think it is critical but you have to add 5mm to the measured value i posted as I measured to the ball centerline to a bit less than the absolute botom as the hood insulation edge is also there. 5mm is a bit less than 0.04" so that .5 + .04 = .54 + a small amount for the casual measurement. Redline may have changed the mount as the one I have is rather old.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
