Ha ha, funny pictures. :)

On the throttle linkage, there is a plastic bushing on top of and bellow the linkage arm you're holding. The plastic bushing also fits inside that linkage arm, that's why the hole in the arm seems so oversize compared to the pin.

I don't think there is anyway to install a new bushing even if you found something similar, since the pivot pin isn't removable.

You'll probably have to get a used unit to replace the whole thing.
