I'd guess it's to mount it on a rotisserie.

Hi All

Thanks for helping me.

Yes it is for mounting on a rotisserie so I need the height (from the floor) of the longitunal center of gravity line

If you can't work it out, you could mount it in what looks about right, but aim a fraction low, then bolt some weight to the floor to balance it out.

The rota-dip holes are very high and you will find its no where near the COG, the lower section being a lot heavier than the upper section

 

The ones that bolt to the Front subframe mounts / rear shocker tops should have the rotation a lot near the COG

 

They make it a lot more managable when turning the shell to roast another bit
