Does anyone know if the mounting footprint for the irvine 53 is the same as the OS AX series 46/55?

Comparing a 46 AX (rear needle) with a British Irvine 53 visually, the mounting hole pattern seems identical but the OS is 1/16 of an inch or so longer to the prop driver. The Irvine is maybe 3/16 of an inch higher but the exhaust flanges line up - and have the same hole spacing so could use each other's silencers if required. My only 55 is in a model so I can't check but the data from OS should be available on line...although I have noted that there are later versions of the 46/55 now...

Yes the AX, SC, OS, ASP and Irvine are on 17.5mm mounting hole centres

And 44mm beam mount centres

Thanks all for the info, had hoped to fit a 4 stroke but will try the model out as is before changing the engine, can't decide which engine to put in it, I have a choice of a laser 70 which will require major firewall surgery, an OS 52 fs and, favourite for the moment, a Saito 82 which will allow me to swing a scale size prop.
