Tempo Line Trim Can't Post

Anybody out there have a recent copy of the line trim specs for Tempo reserves? I can't find them on the aerodyne website.

My Tempo manual, which I believe was current when Aerodyne absorbed PISA, doesn't list the trim specs.

Tempo Reserve Line Trim

Tempo 120
A to B 65mm
B to C 132mm
C to D 191mm
Deployment Setting 130mm below C
full flight setting 350mm above D

Tempo 150
A to B 73mm
B to C 148mm
C to D 214mm
Deployment Setting 130mm above A
Full flight setting 400mm above D

Tempo 170
A to B 80mm
B to C 162mm
C to D 234mm
Deployment setting 130mm below C
Full flight setting 380mm above D

Tempo 210
A to B 84mm
B to C 171mm
C to D 247mm
Deployment setting 130mm below C
Full flight setting 460mm above D

Tempo 250
A to B 88mm
B to C 178mm
C to D 270mm
Deployment setting 130mm below C
Full flight setting 500mm above D

Deployment setting means that the toggle is inserted into the deployment brake loop and is touching the steering guide ring.
Full flight setting means that the toggle is touching the steering line guide ring.

These dimensions are from a faded, fourth-generation photo-copy.

Mind you, I have never had to re-line any of the hundreds of Tempos that I repacked.
Only one customer complained are his Tempo turning irrationally, but then his harness was assymetrical by five inches!
Hah!
Hah!

Thanks...I've gotten no response from Aerodyne yet. The trims you gave me match the canopy I'm inspecting, so that's good.
