TR4/4A Stromberg linkage question

A small question re the linkage to a set of Strombergs on an early TR4A. There is a kind of bell crank on the forward carb, and it's not symmetrical; one arm is a little longer than the other. Which one connects to the short carb throttle arm, and which to the long linkage arm?

I've found a couple pictures, but neither are definitive. The one below, from the Rimmer catalog, seems to show the short end to the carb, but it's not at all clear. A photo I found on-line seems to indicate the opposite, but it is even less clear, and for all I know, may be connected wrong.

Here's how mine is. The long arm is attached to the short throttle rod (going to the carb). I think it's correct because it aligns the short rod just about straight up and down. But then again, I'm guessing.

Thanks. I guessed that as well, for the same reason, but it would be nice to know definitively. Might be one of those things where the answer has been lost to time.
