Hello, I'm looking for a part like this . . I'm not sure what to call it (grommet maybe) or where I can find one. It's where the throttle links to the go kart frame to hold the cable sleeve in position. It's on a Murray Explorer and it's a pain to set up throttle without it. Thanks for any help!

I don't know what those are called either, but I've robbed them off of scrap bicycles - there seem to be two sizes, the ones on brake cables are bigger and beefier. Looking on Amazon I see this kit for $20 shipped ( HDM Go Kart Racing GX160 GX200 6.5HP Predator 212 196 Clone Carburetor Throttle Linkage Carb Kit ), they call it a "Compression Fitting"

- which makes me want to go look at little brass compression fittings in the plumbing section and see if they'd work.

Sorry I'm not more help

EDIT: go to Amazon, and search for "Cable Adjusters". Lots of styles, I'd definitely look for one made of steel or at least beefy aluminum.

No, I appreciate your response! Thanks for the heads up. Maybe I'll check out a bicycle store and see if they have something similar.

Do an Amazon seach on "Cable Adjuster", lots come up. (who knew it'd be named something so obvious, doh!)
