Older Ariens Carb replacement

Anybody find a good adjustable carb replacement for the older Ariens with the longer choke lever going to the side of the machine?

I have a go-to for the machines with the loop for the choke mechanism that gets mounted to the carb with the knob on the rear of the machine, just not one for the above..

Thanks

I modified my heater cover box to accept the new aftermarket on one of mine, which also is adjustable, to allow the choke lever to be operated through the heater box, and did away with the long pull wire mounted on the side of the engine. I still have to paint the opening, and put on the slit black rubber edge around the opening, along with a flat rubber cap for the choke lever end.

The machine model number and engine model will really help us figure out a good replacement carb. Also a few pics of the carb with the heat shield removed will help. The aftermarket Chinese carbs work well and are cheap. A few times I've had to swap out the main throttle or choke shaft to make the replacement carb the same as the original.
