The cable was the field fix for separated motor mounts (this was before the "interlocked" motor mount design went into production, which was the final production fix); this was, at the time, the biggest recall in GM history - if the mount separated, the engine rolled to the right and jammed the throttle linkage wide open. If you have the original pre-recall non-interlocked motor mounts and no cable, would probably be a good idea to replace the mounts with the newer interlocked type.
