Default 69 Z28 Carb Throttle Linkage

Hi all. First post here. I'm a new owner to a 1969 Z28, single Holley 4bbl (i.e. not cross ram). My car is not getting full throttle at the accelerator pedal. Looking on the web I see a curved Z28 throttle linkage rod - mine is straight, and is clearly not OEM. I've searched but can't find a good picture of the OEM linkage installed on a Z28.

Can anybody assist with an installed picture of the OEM throttle linkage rod and spring for my car please ?- from the firewall throttle pedal inside the engine bay, to where it connects to the carb. I've ordered an AIM, but don't have it yet...

Thanks for any assistance...

Jerry, I think Chris wants the linkage for use with the cowl induction.
Is this true Chris?
If so, its in the last pages of the book.

Pretty sure the linkage for cowl induction is the same. The cowl induction has a switch that attaches to the rear arm (which part #2 fits into) and hits the firewall to deploy.

Thanks for the responses guys. Yes it is a cowl induction car, and has a switch on the rear arm in the engine bay. The switch doesn't even come close to hitting the firewall - presumably because the linkage is incorrect. The first image is a picture of my current linkage and incorrect spring. The white image is from the web, and is listed as the correct linkage rod for a 69 Z28
