Grumpy could probably measure one out for ya. I'd stop by and see if he has one.

I like static guide placement rather than a spacing chart:

I can measure a rod, BFish has you on the right track, assuming it's a 9' rod, most guide chart's will apply, that's a start & generally a good one.
As the link BFish posted, that's getting it to optimum performance & cast ability.
