Like the last few guys have stated the linkage is supposed to be on the engine side up front. If the bolt touches the cylinder fins on the up shift just loosen the lock nuts at each end of the linkage and rotate it in the direction that lengthens it (makes the threaded parts longer) and this will move the front lever forward a bit and should give you the clearance you need. Then you may need to re-adjust you toe shift lever if it brings it down too much.
