The mounting ear holes appear to have the same spacing; the C14 is about 3/4" thick, where the 163 (metal shell) is about 1/2" thickness, so you'd need to enlarge the mounting holes about 1/8" on the top and bottom. The 163 is a bit wider, but not enough to matter--you'll have to square off the hole corners, as the shell of a 163 is oval, not rectangular.
Oh, unfortunately the screw holes are not quite the same spacing, but it's possible to file them a fraction to the side on the chassis and still have good coverage and seating of the nut.

Yup, I should take pics of the progressive stages when I do one sometime.
