I'm no expert on the earlier bikes but there don't seem to have been different quills for VH/VG, just a change after 1940 for all models (as per Paul's notes).
There are several other threads about quills in the forum. None of them directly addresses your problem but there is some discussion that might be useful.

The quill is not likely to be any problem. It doesn't rely on it being a good fit. In the flywheel oilway there's a complex small pipe arrangement that's not in the later flywheels and I always remove it. It's not needed. The sludge still ends up where you want it to. In the removable hollow bolt. If you remove it(the oilway sludge trap) you will be able to see it if it's there. You should also check that oil is getting through to the pin itself If the locating pin is missing the oilways may not be in alignment and perhaps no oil to your crankpin. for that reason. Nev
As you have an early timing case the ports behind the pump are different to the later type which has a milled slot between the feed port and the port leading to the quill/crankshaft. The elongated slot in the gasket shown in the your picture is for the later timing case. If your case looks like the early type one below you need the gasket which has just a round hole on that location. The slot will allow oil to flow directly from the pump to the quill without going through the pressure regulator. This will greatly reduce the pressure of oil to the gauge and rockers.
