Which front exhaust/frame clamp

Description: I'm looking for a parkerized front clamp, the one that mounts near the bottom of the front down tubes

In the process of re-doing a few things on the '49 FL, and one is trying to tighten up the front exhaust to S-pipe connection. Seems like the best way is to install the stock type front pipe to frame clamp; problem is, there seems to be two numbers for it according to NOS Parts:

74536-42 Front frame clamp, exhaust pipe - Clamp, voltage regulator brkt. park OHV, Knucklehead, Panhead late'36-'57.

and

65513-58 Front frame clamp, exhaust pipe clamp, late 58-63 FL/FLH.

I'm looking for a parkerized front clamp, the one that mounts near the bottom of the front down tubes. I'm fairly sure it's the -58 number, but before I order it, I'd like to be sure. Thanks,

Part # 65512-37 clamps to the pipe, 65513-58 clamps to the frame and the two bolt up to each other. The set I got from NOS Parts (their part # FLFront from their Panhead Catalog) worked out just fine.
