On my 1968 Plus 2 (which is badged as a 130 but thats another story) the blade carriers are 13.5 inches long (add a anther 0.5 in for the actual rubber) and the arms are 12.5 inches overall. Bear in mind thats for a RHD configuration.... but parts for UK cars are common across all models so these should be OK for your car unles its a federal model.
