I did find this relevant Chevy place to buy a replacement tab, but in the end I saw some small cracks on the fork and decided to replace the whole thing.

Which brings me to my next point, clutch forks are cheap. Buy a new one and be done with it. If it turns out the replacement does not have a retaining tab, then return it and keep using the old one.
Thanks, that might be the way I may have to go unless someone knows something different.
