on the 5.0 H.O, the throttle linkage is on the backside of it. Look at the linkage and I believe it is the bottom cable. It looks like a cable with a spring on it, with a notched part sticking out the end of it past the grommet and a small square piece where it plugs into the grommet. It should snap into a grommet on the linkage bracket of the throttle body. They get old and brittle and break into little pieces. Since this is the only thing that is controlling the transmission and tells the tranny what the line pressure is, you will fry up your tranny in no time with it disconnected.
