Default Neutral Safety Switch Location

I'm looking to by pass the neutral safety switch on my 96 F350. I can't find it. I was told to look between the clutch pedal and the floorboard but it's not there. On the tranny the only wires I see seem to go to the backup lights.

Anyone know where the switch is located? To bypass it, once I find it, can I cut the wires and twist them together?

Thanks for reading, and any possible help.

I just went out again and looked and didn't see it. There is nothing electrical even remotely near the clutch pedal or linkage. I have the new part here, so I can see what to look for.
Guess I better invest in a Manual..... and better glasses.

It is on the pushrod for the master cylinder, between the clutch linkage and the floorboard. I would post a picture, but I am not home right now.

Wow, 2 1/2 years since I started this thread.... I like the picture, it helped me find what I was looking for, well not find really. My truck had the switch removed and wires taped up. After replaceing the Clutch Master Cylinder and Slave Cylinder last week, I added the Safety Switch too.
