This is a new reproduction of the crimp clamp that secured the rubber or vinyl manual choke cable cable sleeve. Made in America by a fellow Mustang owner who needed this part for his car.
On survivor cars have seen this clamp installed right at the very end of the sleeve and anywhere within the last three inches of the sleeve.
This clamp is aluminum, originals are steel. Originals had a cross split (see pictures) and this version does not. It's not an exact copy for sure but its so small once crimped in place it really looks like an original.

Install the rubber or vinyl choke sleeve on cable. Slip this ring over cable sleeve and located it in the correct location (see pictures of originals below). Then crimp in place with some mig-welding pliers. You can find these pliers at most hardware tool stores like Harbor Freight.
