For a viola how far should the string be off the fret board for the a and c and where should i measure?

Also if anybody knows of a viola bridge template that i can use to trim mine to the correct height that would be great

Viola A - 5-6/32
Viola C 7-8/32
Height depends on many factors including the type of string used and the amount of fingerboard curvature. The measurement is taken at the wide end of the fingerboard between the bottom of the string and the top of the fingerboard. The curvature of the bridge top is somewhat dependent on the fingerboard curve and there is no exact curve. Repair shops have their own shape that they use, however, the average curve is 146 degrees. This is the angle created by placing a line through the A & D string grooves and then the G & C grooves.
Here is a pic of a template, the viola bridge one is the center one on the right, however unless you can print it to the exact width of your bridge it will be useless. The standard width on a viola bridge is 48-50mm.

If you like the current curvature of your bridge, copy that before trimming it down.

This is a good article on bridge fitting, but it does not include a curve template. http://www.musictrader.com/fittingabridge.pdf
