Default Webster Query

Still relatively new to the US-built engine scene, I need an answer to this question. Can someone tell me the difference between an "M" and an "MM" Webster magneto. I'm looking for a mag/bracket/ignitor/striker for a little Turner Simplicity 1.5hp, I need an MM mag and my buddy has an M spare. Are they interchangeable??

The M uses a single heavy magnet; the MM uses a double heavy magnet. The mounting should be the same making the two mags interchangeable.
Hopefully someone else will chime in and confirm that.

Is there anything out there that shows the different types of Webster magnetos?

Their used to be a reprint of all Webster mags , showing the different sizes, as well as different trip styles. I don't know if they are still available or not.
