Hi Pete, Sorry, I don't have a picture, but I wouldn't drive the truck anymore till you get it fixed. That linkage also control the line pressure in the transmission. It is designed so that at idle or light throttle, the tranny has very little internal pressure. As you push the gas pedal further down, the link "tells" the tranny to increase line pressure handle the load. What happens when this linkage is missing or incorrectly adjusted, the tranny doesn't have the line pressure to keep the clutch packs engaged enough to overcome the engine load and you burn the tranny up. Depending on hills in your area and your driving habits, this can happen VERY quick. Herman
