Default Stover KE,spoke flywheel,solid flywheel weight interchange

Help for an ebay'er please,I have a man that wants a pair of weights for his solid,with round holes - flywheel Stover Ke 1 1/2 hp,I have listed a weight from my spoke flywheel engine. I had made it for a man with the round hole style engine,and he said it did not fit,so I took it back.
The guy on ebay thinks it will work,can any one with both engines please look and advise if they are the same weight,thank you?

Matt,
Neither of these engines are mine. I see the spring perches are different. The disk flywheel incorporates a tension adjustment. I don't have photos showing the arrangement on other side of flywheel which would be critical.

Thank you Doug,good to hear from you. I looked closely at the two engines,and the weight I have for sale on ebay, (221167603112),I have come to the conclusion that the weight on the top rotation of the gray painted one,with spoke flywheels,may have the wrong weight on the top of revelution,picture. I have studied both engine pictures,it looks like the top weight on the gray painted engine is the same weight on the engine with the round holes. I have spoken several times on here with out complete examination,(and was wrong) so I have studied this for the last 10 minutes,and am sure I am right.
In the light of this,I assume that the weights for a spoke flywheel,which is rarer version,are different from the ones with the solid flywheels,but evidently,maybe the same on the inside,since there can be no other explanation,but that the owner of the gray spoke flywheel engine,as placed weight from a round hole flywheel engine.
I would assume if the man needs a pair,I am dealing with,it would not make a difference,since he would be fitting a pair.
If the owner of the gray engine,with spoke flywheels,would like a mate for his engine,of correct design,I would trade him a casting,for his off type weight. Thank you again Matthew.
