Post FoMoCo 4 barrel carb?

Still sorting things out on my 65 stang. the back two barrels will not open up. I see no linkage but I can manually open them at a certain rpm under full throttle at the carb and man can you tell when they open up. They DO NOT open right now manually by linkage to main throttle or by vacuum. i know there is a piece of linkage that is missing somewhere but I just can not find it. Does anyone have a diagram they can email me or explain how these are supposed to work.

The 4100 is a very good and reliable carb, the only real draw back is they didn't come with much cfm (I think about 585 was the biggest). The vacuum diaphragm for the secondaries is on the very back of the rear bowl, it is fairly good sized and has a rod running from it to the secondary butterflies to open them. The parts come in any good carb kit (except the rod which shouldn't be hard to bend up from solid rod).
