need air filter help

I have a new carter 2-912 carburetor w/o electronic feedback. I need to know where to find the piece that goes on top of the carburetor to mount the air filter. Its shaped like a upside down U and has a bolt in the middle on top and clips in to the top of the carb.

I have seen some decent homemade ones (posted in this forum) where they used coat hanger and just did one wrap around a bolt with a touch of bronze or weld on the bolt to hanger joint. With a nice tight wrap, even a couple washers and nuts with loctite could capture the hanger wire to hold the bolt in the center I would think.
