1927 Pontiac Tourer hand throttle linkage

I can't work out how the hand throttle lever/linkage on my 1927 RHD tourer connects to the foot throttle pivot! I have attached a photo of where I have it at the moment but this would work back to front and the button on the dash would be pulled in when the foot throttle in pressed in! I am hoping someone has a close-up photo of their setup they can share or a description of how it should be positioned. I understand the LHD cars have a long pivot rod on the firewall so may not be similar enough to help confirm the setup on my car in Australia.

Thanks in advance.

The hand throttle connects directly to the carb on LHD vehicles. I don't see how RHD should be any different[ATTACH=CONFIG]217425[/ATTACH]

Thanks Reid. I have been chatting with Heath (aussiecowboy). He confirmed his later models connect straight to the carb but the early Australian cars operate a lever which acts on the foot throttle linkage. I can't find any photos which show the correct setup as the vac tank is always in the way!
