Default 140 Linkage Solutions?

Right, this isn't a problem yet, but I can see it being an issue in the future, so I figure I might as well ask and order parts now.

So I have a 1967 144S, which originally came with SU carbs. I'm probably swapping to either a 38/38 DGMS or DCOE 45s when I get around to reassembling the (swapped) engine.

I understand that the 140s, because of the intake being on the passenger side, has a linkage bar of some sort that runs under the dash.



Where exactly am I supposed to attach any kind of aftermarket linkage arms to?

I see this nub that pokes out of the firewall, but is it threaded?

I also happen to have an IPD throttle cable conversion kit for a DGMS... is that possible to use on a non-EFI car?

Sorry for some probably dumb noob questions.
Any guidance is helpful.
