Default Hawkeye Trip Hammer, Helve Style

I have a Hawkeye trip hammer which I believe is called a Helve style hammer. It is complete, currently sandblasted and in the process of being restored. The skids are made as well as the post. Does anyone have a Hawkeye hammer that they could measure the length of the post that hammer arm pivots on? My post is rotted off and getting the exact length will take some guess work. Thanks and I will post pictures as this goes together. PS: If you Google HELVE HAWKEYE, go to images you will see a nicely finished hammer.

I have a Hawkeye #3 hammer that I run from flat belt in my garage. This is the biggest of the 3 they made and its about a 100lb hammer. Hits really hard. I'll be moving soon and won't be able to take it with me so I'll have to find a new home for it. It came out of an industrial blacksmith's shop that was closing down.
