Where is the throttle return spring supposed to be attached. (1950 216)

Mine is just stuck on the lip of the oil pan but it seems a bit dodgy. Is there or was there supposed to be an attachment point or bracket that attached to the oil pan or something.

There doesn't appear to be any purpose-built hole or device that the throttle spring is meant to attach to,

I used the unused bolt on the bell housing.

Funny timing. There is a device that should bolt under an oil pan bolt. Resto vendors sell them. I just made my own yesterday out of a little conduit hanger.

Will snap a pic later.

I assumed there should be something like that because the oil pan is the only logical place for that spring to go. I would like to see it.

My solution:

$2 for a 4 pack at the hardware store. Drill a hole for the spring to attach. Use a pan bolt to attach.

That bolt is supposed to hold down the missing part of the stomp starter pivot bracket.
But hey, if it works………
