On our 37 WC with crank start only I wanted to have the rod so I could have it reachable from the seat. I know this probably wasn't stock back then.
I made a rod out of 7/32 stock I had around and made a simple clamp holder for it on the agle next to the clutch peddle. Works great.
If you zoom in on the attached photo you can see the rod.

Was no choke rod originaly, all were crank start and you operated the choke at the carburetor.

It"s a rod about quarter inch diameter. Don"t know about the "36, but on our "39 it came back to the foot rest next to the foot clutch. Look for a slot there, lower left side of the panel. I think it was one piece, going straight to the carb. Rod doubled back on itself where it went through the slot.
