Kevin, you can grab one of the screw-type jacks that fit into the bracket from almost any bump or dent era Ford truck, (73-79) as they didn't really change much.

Edit for part link:
Here's the type of jack you'd be looking for, believe I might have one here too. PM me if interested.

You can resize your pictures in Windows Paint program really easy. Check it out and if you need more directions I can go through the process and write down some directions for you.
