Simple fix, I just flipped the standard Van's bracket over to other side (with a little bending to clear the pan) and put the bolt and spacers on on the throttle arm on the other side also:

Here's how I shielded my throttle cable from exhaust. Works OK through 90-hours. I have a Superior cold air sump. so I had to fabricate an additional plate to use the Superior boss with the Van's bracket.

If I remember correctly, I did have to warp or flare out the sides of the shields a little bit due to exhaust pipe bends.

Default Throttle bracket

Here are some pictures of my homemade throttle bracket. Like other's the Vans supplied bracket positioned the cable too low. I made this out of 4130 sheet. It positions the cable higher, closer to the sump. As an added benefit, it gave the cable a slightly better angle relative to the linkage.
Haven't flown yet, but I have run the engine on the ground and no problems so far.

Mine is a factory Lycoming IO-360-M1B bought through Vans.
