What goes here?? was created by Gem80DT175

So, I'm doing my very first restore of a 78 DT 175. The engine needed work and all and so I got a parts bike and am in the final steps of putting the top end back on. Anyway, on both bikes, there was no fitting here (see image) and all the manual showed was as per second image. Please help! What cable/fitting goes here?? TIA!! ~Newbie Rebuilder

Welcome. I guess its got to be the cable that operates the oil pump. Bit hard to see on my computer but nothing else around there that lines up with the pump in the cover at that angle. Cheers from NZ.

Yes! That's it. The throttle cable splits and one side goes to carburetor, the other side here. Thanks for your help!
