WL STABILIZER CENTER PLATE (Front Brake)

I've seen some mention of the STABILIZER CENTER PLATE on the front of the WL (WLA).
I'm still confused.
Does anyone have a picture of the STABILIZER CENTER PLATE actually interfacing with whatever it touches?

Many Thanks.
Dave

Mark,

On that picture, what does the half-moon in-cut on part 4117-30 contact?
Rubone says: That Is the half moon notch that engages the tit(extension post) on the left front rocker stud.

I've never found a picture. Maybe I'm still a little stupid.

If you have factory rocker studs the "tit" is self explanatory!

Thanks for the illustrations and text.
I sure think that I have factory studs, but I'd still love to see an actual photo of the assembly with the half moon of the Stabilizer Center Plate in contact with this tit.

Is my stud missing a tit?

Wrong front stud, that is a right front not a left front stud.

See these..
