In need of the car aligner or the like underhood specs

Im gonna be fixing my car from the accident I was in and need the underhood specs so I can get the core support where it needs to be(would really help if I end up replacing it). I had them years ago, but with the times Ive moved they disappeared. If some one could help me out that would be great!!

Like that, but the ones for the top side. I already found that in a different thread, but thats the kind of ones. I know theres ones for the engine bay, its just gonna be a matter of finding them.

My '85 shop manual has that same diagram.  It is the only diagram for birds/cats.  The dimensions appear to be the same.  (pg 47-11-06, fig 10)

Or if someone with an unwrecked one could get me some measurements from from some good points to get the core support where it needs to be and distances between the front fender mounting bolts that would work to. Id just need to know exactly where your measuring from and to!
