1978 240D Auto to manual swap

Good day. I am in the process of changing my automatic trans. out for a manual.
The junk yard I bought the manual from said it was complete but it was missing the adapter plate that I need to compensate for the difference in the length of the bell housings. I have been unable to locate one anywhere. Does anyone know exactly what the length difference is so I might be able to make one. A detailed drawing of the exact plate would be nice but I suspect I will win the lottery before I could turn up one of those. Thanks for any help.
