More Shifter Cable Bracket ?'s

So I eneded up getting a cable bracket - Picutre below - and it mounts up to the pan bolts. Now I got a cable - Picture Below - for a 77' camaro with a th350 and sbv8. I managed to get it to mount to the shifter just fine, but the hole on the bracket it too small to fit the cable through inbetween the bushings. I have vice gripped them together just to see if I would have enough range to shift the gears, and it works. I need some kind of C-Clamp fastener that will hold them together. Does any one know of the best route to go about this? Do they make c clamp hardware not designated for using it as a tool?

I'm not completely sure what you're asking but i know i've seen something like what you're asking about at hardware stores. Why dont you heat it up, move it to where you need it, then weld it? WOuld be a lot more secure.

I have thought about trying to weld it, but i do not have a welder that will join brass and aluminum. I have an idea to use the mount holes on the side of the tranny and make a backing plate for the cable to prevent it from moving backwards. It will go from P - D but will not go back up into P because of it free moving.

Now if I were to try and use the clamp you have seen at hardware store, can you find a name or a picture that I can refer to?

There's no shops around you that can just put a few tack welds on there? It's not like it's holding weight or anything so it doesn't have to be super strong. I'll try to look for the thing i was talking about. I'll post a link if i find it.

Here's some i found. If you had a picture it would help. There's a ton of clamp-like fasteners on the homedepot site. Just put clamp in the search bar.

What about a hose clamp?

If you can get a picture I could help you better
