    Just took a quick look at my 100,200 Bentley. Dimensions shown are 8mm
from the imaginary line drawn from the web (to the right of the web if you
are facing the key end) and 12.5 mm from the top edge (key end ) of the
housing ( the top edge being the point where the tapered cone from the face
of the lock barrel ends). Hole size is 3 mm.
    It sounds like the same dimensions you have; sorry I can't cross
reference - my 1985-1988 Bentley is in the attic.

Merry Christmas!
