Question Can anyone help find a part for an old Mercury outboard?

It is a 1974 Mercury 402. I am looking for a secondary throttle pickup. (at least that is what I was told it was called)

The motor runs like a champ, but I couldn't get over 1/4 throttle. I took it to a local who tinkers w/ old outboards, and that's what he called it and said it was broken. It looks like a plate connected to the linkage with two "fingers". The second finger is what's broken and activates the WOT.

I thought I would check here before I wasted time looking elswhere.

Thanks,
Casey

Thanks f1f,
I went to Sharkey's site and managed to link to a parts site there. Think I found the part I need, but I want to show mechanic before I order. Part is USED with all sales final................... they want $75 plus S&H you gotta be chitting me! (it's just an adjustment screw ) - but the boat won't run w/out it.

Thanks Chris,
I left a message for Bill. Hopefully he'll have it cheaper and I can pick it up myself.
