MG Midget and Sprite Technical - 1500 throttle link rod clip

happily driving along testing my new brakes (need bleeding again!) when the accelerator pedal suddenly went slack.

I checked and found the rod that links the throttle to the carburettor (number 46 in the attached from moss)

had come out of where it attached to the carburettor..

It had a clip on it, I put the linkage back and put the clip on but it all seems a bit feeble - could someone show a photo of what it should look like please - is there something (split pin?) that retains the clip in place?

Standard 1500midget, twin SU carbs.


is this any good

and an other angle

yes great thanks - I can see that the clip actually clips onto the shaft of the rod - that was the bit of information I was missing.

Would post a photo but mines nowhere near as clean and shiny as yours!
