Throttle getting stuck wide open

hey i just bought a problematic 94 2500 12v automatic. first the fuel shutoff solenoid fell off the engine. and i found all of the AFC housing bolts stripped out. now the throttle is getting stuck wide open. i have inspected all to the linkage and cables and found what i believe is the transmission kick down cable getting hung up on the apps.
it looks like all the brackets are in the right spot and not bent. has anyone else had this issue???

is there a diagram for the shift linkage location and i assume there should be a return spring on the pump ??
thanks for the help

When I bought my 97 the trans kick down cable was frayed and the trans wasn't shifting right but never caused the throttle to hang up.
