Ok - I took a few pictures.  Hope this helps.

 

The tape measure didn't work.  I only had two hands for the tape measure, flashlight and camera.

 

Bolt holes are about 6" top to bottom, about 3" across at the bottom and a bit wider for the top bolts.

The shims are tubes - about 1-3/4" long.  They have an angle cut on one end.

MH 81, That is not a Murray rear in your photo, hitch plate is way too steep. Looks Roper to me.

Is my Craftsman II (18HP) a Murray built sears?  

 

If the model number starts with 502, Murray built it. If in doubt post a photo and I will be able to tell.

Here are some images from another board. As far as I have been able to tell, Murray's and Ropers of the same vintage used the same 3 point, at least this was the case in 1977, which is the only year I could find matching data. I believe the slot on the left side of the Murray plate is to account for the narrower rear end on the like year Ropers. I could be wrong though.
