In previous posts regarding the choke wire (radiator to carb), it seems the consensus is that the loop should be horizontal. See photo posted by Mike Walker:

In his Archifacts article on choke pull rods, John Regan showed the progression of the design. In March of 1913 the carburetor end was changed to have an offset in the end of the rod. The design drawing indicates the offset was in the same plane as the loop.

The 1913 cars used both the Holly 2 screw (which has a horizontal choke lever) and the Kingston 4 ball (which has a vertical lever).

My questions are:

How was the offset end attached to the carb lever i.e. what is the correct way to hook or bend the end?
It seems that if attached to the Holly 2 screw, the loop would be vertical, is that correct?

Pictures of the correct setup would be appreciated! I have both carbs available and am not sure which I will ultimately use.
