1936 vs 1940 linkert throttle arm

Hey there,

Does anybody know the difference between the 1936 and 1940 linkert throttle arm? I thought that the cable routing and clamp was the same so assuming the difference is due to clearance around the different motor mount?

I have been making this arrangement work for a while routing in from the primary side but now want to get the correct throttle arm.

Cheers,
John

The arm changed because '40 up carbs are 4 bolt with a larger body than the previous 3 bolt. The -40 arm is not as tall as the -36.

One other question. When adding that control cable bracket to the middle rocker bolt, can I just loosen that middle bolt and install the bracket? Nothing to worry about loosening that bolt up?

Feel free to loosen it, no issues.
