Default 78 C6 question

I have a 78 Bronco with a C6. The kickdown linkage from the carb to the trans fell off during the engine swap. What holds the bar to the trans and where can I get a replacement part?

Is it a gromet or an E-clip or something else entirely?

there should be a peg on the kick down arm with a groove for an E-clip and a hole w/a grommet in the end of the bar.

Any idea of the size of the grommet? The truck is an hour away and I have been trying to gather the last parts needed to get it running this weekend.

Sounds like you should make a call to the bronco grave yard.

Thanks. I finally found a pic of one. It is a pain trying to gather parts when the truck is so far away.

Maybe try green leaf salvage by Jeff's on kensington (iirc). They are a Ford only salvage yard.
