Plans for making the bracket for a Bosch starter are in the January 1990 Central States Association Newsletter .  See 34 year CSA digital collection.

Make your own bracket and use an automotive starter. Been doing that for about 30 years now. Easy peasy.

I would stay with a B&C starter!  However, on my Cozy the B&C wouldn’t fit.  I have a IO-360 Angle Valve engine out of a Mooney and B&C said that’s the only engine they won’t fit on.  I had to switch to a Skytec🙁

Skytec used to take and brand of a starter as a trade-ins, then  offer a "refurbished" starter with warranty. That's what I did several years ago.   I don't know if they do that anymore, now that they are part of Hartzel.
