Default engine transport cradle?

Hey Guys,

When I took my engine down to the shop I simply used a tire. When I pick it up it will be nice and painted, etc. I'm looking to build a cradle similar to the picture I attached. Since i don't have my engine handy I'm hoping to get some dimensions from you guys.

I need to know the spacing between the rails that will cradle the engine. I assume I'd want to support it just below the heads so it could be used if it was just the block? I also need the depth assume the engine has both oil pans attached.

Any help or alternate ideas is appreciated!
