It might be on the Stak here somewhere. I'll see what I can dig up and post links here...

I went to Ted Brookover's site. He lists igniters by engine and center to center measurements. He does not say who built them, nor the casting numbers. He is no longer with us, and the site is maintained in his memory. Efforts to contact the site holder have been fruitless. I have seen quite a few posts, where people are asking either 'what does this fit' or 'what do I need?', thus the request to find the list. I remember seeing it at one time, but now memory fails me. If I do find it, I will try and post it or its location as a stickie, for future reference. Thanks Harry for your help!
Andrew

Their are pages of listings in Wendel's Notebook, and in "The Webster System" by Doc Schuster, with most of the Webster brackets #'s listed by Engine & HP, and the mag used on each bracket engine combination . I've never seen a listing on the internet, but then I never really looked. As far as igniter listings, not all igniters are Webster, or have casting #'s on them. Ted's listing is the only one I know of . I'm sure there are other mag and bracket combinations that aren't Webster made. Don't know much more than that .

I had found that site earlier. Good for IDing plain igniters, but doesn't list those made by Webster. John Victor was kind enough to send me a PDF for Webster. It covers some but not all of the brackets. Thanks, John!

I don't think there is a list for Wizzard brackets. I think Ted made some mistake in his list .
The Webster list is not complete either.
And there are some cross fits where its listed for one fit but it fits another make too and some are not listed .
All Webster's that have a brass tag or ground off numbers with new ones stamped in fit multiple engines. Some needed a slight elongation of holes for fit .
