620x setup - need help

Setting up my 620X

I took her all apart and cleaned it up and resoldered the connections to fix a lil eletrcial problem.

So NOW im at square one. I want to have my tremolo blocked, and from there I can set up the intonation and such. BUT I need to know how far to have the sustain block from the body so i can make up a lil block and the trem is resting perfectly neutral.

Im pretty sure the cavity and sustain blocks are a standard size so it should be fairly simple, could someone measure it out for me? In the trem cavity from the top layer of wood, to the front of the block, how long will it be in terms of inches (ie 1/32) This is from the TOP layer in the cavity, not the lil cutout 1/4 of an inch down in the cavity (hard to explain on here, but its the lil chunk that sticks out that isnt flush with the top layer)

Could someone please measure so I can fab a block and set up my guitar?!?

you know, given individual differences in bridges, bodies, and setup preferences, it might be easier if you popped the bridge back on, tuned it to pitch, set the angle to your preferences, then made the measurements yourself, made the block, installed it, then did a proper setup... just a hunch.
