I have an 83 gl , and i bought it used with a webber. It seems to be mounted backwards from every other webber I've seen. If you are looking at the car from the front, the throttle cable connects on the right.
So here's where i'm lost.... Most accelerator cables have a small little barrel at the end that fits into a slide off the side of the rocker on the carb.
Mine has instead an inch long post with a divit for a ball (almost like a ball joint) at the end. On the side of the carb, there is a ball. But, the post just kinda sits there, unsecure. when i got the car it had a rubber band holding it there. So, i'm curious, the whole rocker peice is gone, and i haven't seen another right mounted cable so all the rockers i find have the holder on the reverse side as i need.
***Does anybody have any idea what the peice looks like, where i can get one, or how to fab up a piece that can replace (allowing the ball to still roll, not holding it tight, but restricting it from falling off).
Please, any help is much appreciated.

I have spare parts and a welder.
Worse case scenario we will need to replace your throttle cable, but I can show you the setup on my BRAT and wagon, both custom made by me.
