Default Left hand throttle

I have a 1996 RV6 360 A1A CS prop and want to set up a left hand throttle. I have read several threads on the topic where a few builders have done this successfully but need some advice from the community on the below options:

1) Connect additional throttle cable on inside of throttle arm
Clearance between carb throttle arm and carb bowl is 0.5950" If I add a rod end bearing and a washer that will be 0.4750" leaving a clearance of 0.1200" ........ this could work but would not leave much clearance. Does you know of a standard or best practice when setting this clearance?

2) Connect additional throttle cable on same side of throttle arm.
This requires putting 2 rod end bearings together. Solves clearance problem but other applications have put each rod end bearing on each side of the throttle arm.

3) Get a new throttle arm with more clearance.
I have a precision motive carb and not sure if I can buy a different throttle arm.

Any thoughts or help appreciated.
