Gearbox clutch lever pivot

I Guys, I am new to this website and forum, but not new to BSA's or the M family of BSA motorcycles.

I have noticed two variations on the M20 gear box outer cover, specifically the cast pivot mount for the clutch Level.
Some have a round / tubular protrusion from the casting.
Some have a rectangular slot protrusion.

I suspect the rectangular cast section is pre war, but I am not sure.
Can any one elaborate please.

Yes Mitch, the early box had a different casting to retain a rubber Jonnie. Ron

Thanks Ron

I see from the multitude of pics that these are mixed, due to years of work on the bikes I guess.
Any idea when the transition from round to rectangular happened?

I am matching boxes to Several project bikes, hence my interest in getting a better suited match.
