I have been having problems with the throttle on my Holley sticking open. The guy who built my eninge toos a shortcut and used a screw with 2 nuts and loc-tite to hold the throttle cable onto the carb. I am almost positive this is the reason it is sticking. It seems like the screw and nuts were too tight and causing the cable to kink. This may sound like a stupid question, but what should I use to hold the cable to the carb. I saw a throttle cable stud in Jegs, but it was like 8 bucks. Any suggestions?

Mr. Gasket sells a kit, local auto parts stores are likely to carry it. A speed shop will carry it. Do you have throttle return springs?
