Gear Design Question Question

I'm trying to lay out some gears with the following criteria:

4 gears (kite shaped pattern)

25% reduction between input gear and output gear. (Input shaft & output shaft are parallel, on opposite sides of the housing)

5" spacing between the top & bottom gear, with the side gears falling where they will.

With the angles between the teeth on the gears, and the spacing requirements, is there a way to get the gears to line up? I was thinking around 40-48 teeth maximum for the top gear, which would put the bottom one around 30-32 teeth.

Any help is appreciated.
