If it helps anyone, here's the dimensions of various axles - measured from bits in the workshop this afternoon!

Width of axle between brake backplates:

Kadett C 1230 mm, Manta A 1230 mm, Manta B 1285 mm, Chevette HS 1210 mm

Width of axle across brake drum faces:

Kadett C 1370 mm, Manta A 1400 mm, Manta B 1455 mm, Chevette HS 1380 mm

Distance between centrelines of trailing arms at spring pan mounting:

Kadett C 950 mm, Manta A 930 mm, Manta B 930 mm, Chevette HS 950 mm

Distance between centrelines of damper mountings on axle:

Kadett C 1020 mm, Manta A 995 mm, Manta B 995 mm, Chevette HS 1020 mm

Length of panhard rod:

Kadett C 930 mm, Manta A not measured, Manta B 880 mm, Chevette HS 930 mm

These were measured on a 1978 Kadett C 1.2S coupe, a Manta A axle of unknown vintage from a 2.3 SC Chevette, a 1986 Manta B GT/E, and a 1980 Chevette HS.
