    I am working on my 1970 maverick, and I'm needing a few dimensions from a factory maverick. I'm looking for an accurate measurement from inside front shock tower, to opposite tower right where the UCA bolt it. Also if someone has an angle gauge, what the factory angle/tilt is of the tower at the same point.
    I am opening up the engine bay, and neglected to take these measurements before removing the towers.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "inside front shock tower". If you mean the side towards the engine at the top I guess I can't help you.

    Thank you rthomas, these great info, and I’ve searched for that picture. what I did was, I removed the shock towers after taking measurements, then installed brackets for the UCA. Somehow it just doesn’t look right. If I can’t find the distance from the left to right UCA mounting surface, it may be easier to get the dimension of centerline to centerline of left and right UCA pivot shaft (Or essentially grease zero to zero across the engine bay).
