rear wheel bearing spacer & circlip

does anyone know the exact length of the spacer in the centre of the rear wheel hub, between the two bearings?

both my bearings failed - one catastrophically, destroying; the bush on the left side, the circlip, the dust seal, and taking a few mm (i think) off the spacer.

i have spare bearings, and managed to get a similar dust seal, but i want to get a new spacer machined first thing monday - i'm in namibia (SW africa) and it will take up to 3 weeks to get a replacement otherwise...

lastly does anyone know the size of the circlip? seems about 40mm but i don't have anything to measure it accurately enough and the remaining pieces aren't really big enough to get a match.

thanks in advance.
