Default Same problem when hot

FWIW, I now have the same problem, but only when the engine is hot. Ordered the straight arm today.

After looking at the geometry, I'm not sure why the kit did not include the straight arm to start with. The cable aligns directly with it and does not require a spacer as it does with the offset arm.
