something is broke where the accelerator cable connects to the butterfly at the thottle body... Ford does not have a good picture to tell me what is broke or missing... is there a picture that I can look at of this connection point, to know what is wrong or missing..... does the round knob on the butterfly just get forced into the plastic piece at the end of the accelerator pedal?...my car is a '95 with a manual tranny.....

appreciate the photos.....will go home and match it against my car.....but the cable I was inquiring about is the lower right cable (as your facing the car). Does that just 'snap' over the 'ball' attached to the butterfly valve on the throttle body.?? mine is a '95 SC with 5 speed....

Yes the cable/rod has a plastic fitting on the end that snaps onto the metal ball of the throttle body butterfly linkage. I'd post a pic but the batteries in my camara are dead.
