I think you'll get many more helpful responses in the classic and vintage part of this forum.

Although they might string you up for wrecking a classic! I sure hope it's a complete basket case or just an engine....

It depends on how the hub of the 'vader' wheel is set up. A picture would help.

Get out your protractor, tape measure, ruler, laser sight, etc.

Or take good high-res direct side-on photos and print out, then measure.

Or overlay high res photo into AutoCad and measure.
