With the air filter on you cant even see it so I doubt that anyone would have picked it up. I had a look back through some of the earlier photos I took last night and there on the original manifold is, I assume, the original return spring bracket. (jeeez, that old manifold is heavy..)

Yep - there it is (although it is positioned upside down). That turned down edge should face the carb. That holds the tab in alignment with the hole on the pedal bracket on the manifold. Still works ok on the replacement carb - think you can see it on mine.

Funny - I was used to MGA / MGB intakes (the little aluminum tubes - probably weigh a couple of ounces). Was replacing the intake gaskets on my Tbird back in 2004 when I was putting the car back on the road. Couldn't get the intake off - kept thinking I had missed a bolt somewhere. Finally stood on the inner fenders and gave it a good was already loose. Couldn't believe how heavy the intake was. I bet it weighs as much as the MGA HEAD .
