Anyone know name of this part I need?

I was installing valve covers the other day on my 454bbc motor and im guessing the part in picture is what i need but cant find the name anywhere online, anyways it's what holds the throttle cable at the very end of cable to the throttle linkage on carberator, and it's not the throttle braket lol like i was told by Mr.Napa i think it's like a keeper or something rite, i do need exact name though to buy it?

It's part of the throttle spring, there's one in these kits on fleabay:

Stainless Adj Throttle Return Spring Bracket Dual SBC BBC Fits Chevy Ford 350 | eBay

Chrome Throttle Return Spring Kickdown Bracket Fits Chevy Olds Pontiac Buick | eBay

I would think Mr. NAPA or one of his friends would have something similar on the HP or Fix It rack from Mr. Gasket, etc.

sorry but somethings are sold it kits and you must buy them. aftermarket linkage is sold that way. have bought many of them in my time. and i only needed this do dad, or this thingy. or you can hunt the swap meets. sorry but $20 bucks to have what you need is a no brainer. yes i use two springs for crisp throttle response!!!! also you could just make this with a little effort . good luck!!

like i said this is a simple thing to make. you still have it right. why not weld it back together or hit up a shop to fix it. hot rodding is not cheap !! can not go on and on for two holes in a tiny piece of metal. and you not wanting to spend a $20. it's not like your going to get this part for $1!! and have it shipped.

Call Lokar . This is what they call a S item. You can buy this by itself , shipping will cost more than the part.

Just get a piece of SS or even a little bit thicker piece of aluminum and make one. All you need is a hack saw, a couple of drill bits, and a couple other odds and ends like a file and sand paper. It will be a lot better then that little piece of chrome plated Chinese steel. And even better, you would have finished and installed it well before the time this thread ran its course and it would have been a lot cheaper then even postage
