I would like to know the length of the arm from pivot centerline to wheel centerline, and wheel diameter?

Thanks

I have one very similar, it's 3 1/2" arm center to center
I didn't think it put enough tension on the chain this far from the rear sprocket even the spring is pretty stiff. so it never got used

They work great with a fairly tight chain, they don't like much slop. Had mine for 3 yrs, only problem is the pivot hole is slightly elongated from wear, the wheel is still like new. It also makes the chain much quieter. They look much better, and buff out nice, plus the safety factor is a huge plus, if you've ever had a stock tensioner sucked into the spokes at speed, you'll know what I'm talking about. These are the best tensioners on the market.
