Removing a throttle lever, from possibly a CH-2100

Hi all, I have a Beneteau 36.7 with a Volvo Penta MD-2030 engine. The throttle control looks like a Teleflex CH-2100, but it says "Volvo Penta" on it. I'm trying to remove the throttle arm so I can retrofit a Spinlock control on to it.

There is a set screw which I removed but the arm won't budge. It looks like there may be another set screw under the first, but I can't tell. The manual for the CH-2100 shows just one, but I'm not certain it's a CH-2100.

I think it may be corroded on and I tried to put some penetrating oil in there, but i doubt I got much in. Any suggestions are appreciated thanks!

It's not uncommon for there to be a second set screw under the first one, whether installed at the factory or by a previous owner. Before getting rough with the lever, if it doesn't come right off I'd at least probe for another screw. I'd hate to fight with the thing for hours and tear stuff up only to find there was another screw in there.
