Replacing wood fire wall and trying to remove this Throttle Rod Lever. can't see any pins. looks longer and curved in comparison to #3531 - 2 pin Lever that is available.

Are these unique to RHD, or ??

Ros, for what it is worth, I can remember removing the steering column from the wooden firewall without removing the throttle arm by rotating the lever so that the arm is back across the steering shaft and advance rod and wiggling it through the hole at an angle. There is often a little half circle relief at the top of the hole which may have been made there for the purpose. This may/may not work for the longer early arms.

The arms are usually pinned, but not that far from the end of the rod. Your advance rod looks to have a weld in it, so perhaps someone has already been playing with your set-up.

Hope this helps.
Allan from down under.
