Need R20 stock steerer tube length

I have just completed an R20 rebuild(link to photos below). I am dissatisfied with the handling of the RST Capa fork that I used and am thinking of replacing it with a fork from a Sun EZ Sport recumbent. I no longer have the stock fork so I cannot measure the length of the steerer tube.

Does anyone have a stock fork that they could measure for me? Or does someone know the the size of the steerer tube?

Thanks

Steerer tube: 237mm from crown seat to top
threaded section: 20mm
crown to dropout center: 310mm

rake I have measured accurately before; I cold-set mine to have less rake for improved steering, a rough measurement is 50mm.
