Are you able to just take a measurement of the length between the top & bottom ends of the ribbon cage flanges?
From the rear, if the name plates are hiding them on the front?
I pealed off the back nameplates and remeasured at 60 5/8". The name plates were mounted with a little overhang.
I can not measure the cages without taking off the socks.
The inside width of the metal cage is 0.7" wide according to my Starrett calipers.
Mine are exactly 60". So I have to extend my slot by 5/8" = 16mm.
This is strange. Last time I measured them the were same length, T-IVa amd MG 3.6. I will have to check once more.
... Roger! :-))
I had always thought that the new ribbon was a bit longer.
Embarrassing .... being a pro in measuring. The old cages are 1524, the later ones are 1540 mm. I took for granted the later ones had the covers over the edge of the cage to cover the connections.
