Many assorted counts are available at:

and I'd be glad to add others. A difference of 43 consonants isn't 
surprising, however, the question is whether there's some facet of 
counting I'm not doing correctly.

Is there any way that one can come up with a total of 603,550 "letters 
in the Torah" as attributed to Levi Yitzhak of Berdichev corresponding 
to Numbers 1:47, referenced earlier?
