Hi Bill:

           I have two manuals here date 06-19-85 and 10-09-96 and both
of them have the following:

Reflector:      A..59.25,       B..47.25,       C..28,          D..18
Rear Driver     A..56.50,       B..47,          C..27,          D..21
Front Driver   A..45.50,       B..43,          C..25.25,       D..18
Director       A..51.00,       B..43,          C..23.75,       D..20

Hope this helps.
