Metro slave cylinder again

Following on from my recent posting re Metro 1.3cc clutch slave cylinder luckily one of our members has got one for me. However, I also need the bracket and the lever. Looking on the web I see that there are two types, standard and verto are they interchangable or if not any ideas what the difference is?

Presuming we are talking about a metro with an A series engine, a verto type clutch has the slave cylinder mounted on the wok ( clutch cover) with a short actuating arm, the earlier non verto clutch has the slave cylinder mounted on the drop gear housing with a long actuating arm. If you have a verto clutch you cannot just change the arm and bracket to non verto you have to change the flywheel/pressure plate and back plate and vice versa.

verto short arm with custom slave mounting bracket (note adjustable push rod and redundent stop bolt).
i dont see why a long arm would not operate a verto cluch with an adjustable push rod (or the old trick of heating and bending the arm) i intend to fit one at some point.
