So I went and picked up a 20 dollar Mr. Gasket throttle bracket, and noticed the other day the stupid thing bends when you depress the pedal. I have been looking at the kind that have two eyelits that secure to carb base. Summit and Jegs don't have very good pictures and descriptions to tell if they're the square type detent that I am looking for. Some of them say "GM style throttle". Does this mean small square detent for the throttle? or the large square detent for the kickdown? or something completely different that is on the older muscle cars? Thanks in advance.

I used a GM part from a carbed V8 car. It had the square hole the Fiero cable fit in. I had to do a little fab work on the plate because it didn't match my flange. It' s stamped steel and has reinforcements stamped in it. Might be a good idea to take a trip to the local you-pull-it. Could you reinforce the one you already have?
