Here is a template for one of many clock plates: Wheely King Clocked Motor Plate Template

There are also numerous threads where people have fabricated their own, with several different types of designs. This is the search results I got from "clock" searching in the WK section: http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/searc...searchid=73295 ...browse through those and see what ya find out.

I never really intended the WK trans to fit in the Manta when I designed it. You could lay it down, but like you said...it may be too wide. Since it can't stick out the side like the Widow it would have to fit inside the plates.

If you're dead set on using the WK trans, you'll need to fab a clocking mount.
