Installing a BB-3 on the bass drum!

OK I could use some help from some people who may own vintage Pearl stuff. I have a 26x14 bass drum and want to install a double tom mount. Can someone measure their 14" deep bass drum and let me know how far the front edge of the mount is from the front edge of the bass drum?

The tom mounts are also drilled into the tom shells, so I'm not dealing with any suspension mounts. The L-arms can extend freely into the shells like the old days.

If anybody has vintage Pearl stuff and can relay this info, I'd be greatly appreciative!

Thanks in advance!
