Is this a printed circuit board amp? It easiest to get the measurements from a bare PC board, but if it's assembled it should still be possible. Mounting holes need to be exact, but you can probably use oversize holes for the sockets - it will give some ventilation too. Maybe pots and inputs can just be oversize clearance holes too. A "step drill" is the best way to make large holes - Harbor Freight has a cheap set that should do.
