Looking for help finding steering cable part

This is off a 1986 Morgan 43. This plastic piece secures the steering cable to the quadrant and has broken because it is old and brittle. Looking for help finding a new one, does anyone know where I can find one?

Thnx, Tor

Re: Looking for help finding steering cable part

Replacing an old brittle plastic part with another probably old brittle plastic part doesn't seem like a good idea. Take the part to a machine shop and have them make you one of metal. You want strength and reliability in a steering system.

Try a place called MSC. I needed a clevis end for a control cable. Edson wanted $36.00, I paid $6.00 for it from MSC.
