it may help him find one if he posted it in the parts "wanted" instead of "for sale" section also....

but no Mike, not what he needs....

 He has a C10, he posted a couple posts about it being "stuck"...:

Don't have a clue why a purchase is needed till he looks

16021-1101   SCREW-THROTTLE STOP

it's only $90.18 from Ron ayers... in stock.

so far he never mentioned it needed to be replaced, and until he actually pulls the carbs off, and squirts some penetrant on the threads..and breaks the threads free of the carb body, he really is "looking" for an answer to a problem that costs nothing to remedy (except the time)

Did take it apart. sprayed some pb blaster on it, and it still wouldn't budge! finally got a plier on it, then the cable broke. Guess I'll be ordering one from Mr. Ayers.  Thanks

sorry to hear... did you get the threaded section out??????
 I'm missing something, but... not knowing what you twisted with the pliers, with the carbs out... I can only guess... that it was not the threaded end...
best of luck.

that's the picture of the part I said wouldn't turn. I eventually got the threaded end out, but I twisted the hell out of the cable end when I initially was trying to turn it. had to put a small wrench on the flat end of the threaded part to loosen it. anyway, got a used replacement part on Ebay. couldn't see paying $90 plus $17 for shipping. Thanks for the help anyway.
