SL350 rear wheel spoke measurements

I am in the process of ordering new spokes and nipples from Buchanan's and was wondering if anyone has the measurements for the spokes on the rear wheels of the 71-72 SL350's. I'm afraid my old spokes were pretty rusty and I tossed them before I realized they would have to be measured for replacements. I am sure my wheel and hub are stock but since they are special order through Buchanan's they want measurements before they will fill the order. Thanks - dave

I called them two different times and both people I spoke with said they did not have the sl350 in their data base. I ended up pulling a wheel off another sl350 I have, pulled a couple of spokes and called them back with the measurements. I too figured that someone with an sl350 would have ordered from them before but they must have had a problem with previous orders not being right and therefore requiring the measurements. Thanks for the effort, it is greatly appreciated.
I tried that through Western Hondas site but it only showed the length for the 163.5 spoke, the other one is discontinued with no info listed. They also needed the diameter at the top and bottom of the spoke and rim hole size. Hopefully I will be all set with the info I gave them.
