Default swaybar measurement

Hi all,
bought a 1946 Ford Coupe last summer. When I got the car there was no trackbar and no swaybar in it. I bought all the missing parts from different sellers. Also choosed the pearch bolts from a 1939 with only one eye. Now the swaybar doesn't fit to mounting holes of the pearches. It is about 2inches to narrow. For me it seams that the swaybar has been bent to fit another frontend. But I'm not sure.
Can anybody help me with the original width of the swaybar? Measured from eye to eye on the inside for example? Would be great help.

Greetings from Germany!

When placed on top of a straight ruler I get 36 inches total length, end to end.

ok, thanks. - that's close to mine. So it has to be a difference in the axle (can't imagine this) or the pearchbolts.
Does anybody know the difference in offset of the pearchbolts?
