The throttle control lever on my Carter BB1 has somehow sheared/broken to the point of no use.
A) Does anyone know where to find parts like this? (i have reached out to mikes, waiting on a response)
B) If not, would JB Weld hold me over for a bit?
C) Should I look into a new carb, if so, what kind of carb would be a replacement for something like this?
Pic can be found here:
Thank you in advance!

I wold think it could be brazed successfully, would need a little better detail to be sure.

I would agree with J.B. Castagnos, .... brazing.
Or, double it up with a similar piece of steel plate and tiny (2x56) machine screws (and JB weld)
Or, ..... machine a new one out of a chunk of steel.
I wouldn't trust just epoxy on that, if the epoxy lets go the throttle could 'flop' to the wide open position, ...... Not really what you want.
