    You might want to try the 5/8" hex, BPMR6F taper seat plug. It is considerably smaller than the stock 3/4" hex plug though not as small as a CM-6. It is also a resistor plug that requires no adapter....

    Yes, the early G-38 had no choke and that is the easiest way to tell the carbs apart. If the carb has a choke it is probably the WT-338. They made that change a long, long time ago!
