Just finished measuring one i got awhile back from one of the bigger parts suppliers for m151 parts.

Cap o.d. is 1.063 on all 4.
Distance from end to end is 3.22
Outside ring to outside ring is 2.6

These dimensions match to standard chart dimensions such given by moog.

Here is the kicker. The supplier ground off the model number.... has to be out in the wild for cheaper I would think.

Batteries are cheap and this came with a spare battery. This is not a high end one but it checks out against known measurements.

I know they all pretty much look the same but the ones I have look the most like Moog by the pics available online. Sent email through Moog contact form. Will see if we get a response.
