I broke a clip on my carb once on a motorcycle that held on the arm that my throttle cable attached to. I was on the highway and i couldn't decelerate (scary at 80mph and climbing), i pulled into an off ramp and killed the motor, shifted to neutral with it off so it didn't explode at high rpm, and parked at the top of the ramp. After realizing what had happened (again, clip broke) i found a piece of street sweeper brush wire that was right there and used that to pin the arm together where the clip went. Never actually replaced the clip because the wire did the job so well!
