Need accelerator spring bracket

Does anyone have any info on where I could find an original retainer bracket which holds the rear loop of the throttle return spring in place. This bracket mounts on top of the coil bracket and is needed for a 1967 small block(327) with rochester 4bbl carb. If I understand correctly, this was only used on the '67 models. 1968 used a different version. An aftermarket in the correct style would also work for me. I've searched the usual parts books (Ground Up, Rick's, Classic, etc.) and cant seem to find one.(Classic does list the style for 1968). Or should I otherwise use a coil bracket with a tab and hole off the side? In that case, any problems using a coil bracket set to an angle for cowl hoods (which is required for clearance on cowl hood air cleaner set-ups)? This is the only type coil bracket I've seen with the side tab for first gens. Any other reasonable suggestions for securing the rear end of this throttle spring? Thanks much in advance--Joel

Re: need accelerator spring bracket

You could make one. Its just a thin piece of metal with 2 holes in it.Even if its not perfect you can"t see it with the air cleaner on.
