Thumbs down Outhaul question re: a Catalina 22


My wife and I are brand new to sailing (i.e. we don't know squat yet). We just purchased a 1976 Catalina 22 sailboat with a friend/partner. I have a question about the outhaul. What is supposed to connect the grommet of the clew of the mainsail to the outhaul? There seems to be a part missing to make the connection and I'm not even sure what part I need to be looking for or what it's called.

Thanks a million in advance to any help you can offer.
