Default RB 523 carb binding

Throttle arm is too long on these carbs causing a bind, maybe it's just mine but I don't believe it's an isolated incident.

Anyone with one of these motors have this problem and what did you do to remedy this. A shorter arm would work but hard to find one with the correct inside diameter.

Spent about 30 min with some Marvel Mystery Oil and worked the slide in hopes to polish the aluminim a bit. Seems to have smoothed out quite a bit and I have found out that the arm for a .12 RB will fit the 523.

Here is a pic of the two arms, the long arm of the 523 can easily apply sideways pressure to the slide.
