Default WFL Ludwig Floor Tom Leg Brackets and Legs

I have an older WFL floor tom with the spring loaded leg brackets and straight legs. I want to find new leg brackets and legs to put on the tom instead of the originals...the spring-loaded idea is cool, but I'm not the biggest fan of the design, the screws that hold in the brackets have been coming loose no matter how well I've got them tightened...most of the kit is already in player's condition, so I just want to have the floor tom be sturdy. I know that I don't want to put in any extra holes (and I'm definitely going to keep the old brackets and legs, just for history's sake) so does anyone know of another kind of leg bracket that would fit the existing holes? Are the 60s/70s model Ludwig brackets the same size? Or for that matter, are ALL leg brackets 2 and 5/16th inches?

I attached a couple pictures as a reference. Thanks in advance for any info!

Measure the width of the holes from center to center. There are many mounts available that come in different hole patterns.
You could even use newer style Ludwig mounts.
I replace the mounts on my old Slingerland FT. I simply filed one of the holes to become oval shaped with a round file at each mount to allow for a 1/4" difference. The mount covered the oval shaped filed hole.

The holes are 2 and 5/16th inches apart. I just can't find any descriptions of new ludwig, gibraltar, or any kind of bracket that tells their width from screw to screw to try and match them up.
