Defender hand throttle

Recommended Posts

Hi 

Does anybody know where I could find the complete hand throttle kit for the 300 tdi defender ? I'm struggling to find anything!

cheers

The n/a version is a choke cable with a bracket and lever on the pump. I have one on ours but haven't modified it to fit the 200tdi.

Pretty much the same for the 300 tdi Mike. There seems to be plenty of cables about but not the rest of it 🙁

Here's a photo of the n/a set up. I don't think it would be that hard to make something.

Must get round to it at some point.

Have a look in a 1991 defender parts book for hand throttle parts, only items in my 1987 on parts bok are for the older  diesel engines, totally different parts.

HOFS used a lawn mower throttle cable and control iirc on at least one of the proto race trucks with a Tdi , hopefully someone could provide you with a link?

cheers

Back in 2010 I posted a thread on how to do this using (mostly) non-standard but available and home made parts. The pictures are here but I can't find the thread they were linked from.

I've just taken a home-made version off my 300tdi, because the cable had snapped and I can't think I'll ever use it. It's a fairly basic bracket to terminate the cable outer and a small adapter to link the cable to the lever on the pump.

From the 'Wolf' ISPL -

I have the wolf parts manual so have all the proper numbers but searching on the net has turned up nothing. I was told at craddocks that military parts are now only available to military customers. I don't know how true that is .

I've probably got some of the parts, knob/cable and bracket, probably not got any engine side bits but will check tomorrow.

Sadly this can’t be done on a TD5

Only option is to fit cruise control.

I've got a hand throttle bracket, plastic cover and cable - if you want it you can have it for £12 posted.

The cable for a n/a setup is quite short though - not sure how much use it will be. if I were going to rig something up on my own vehicle I would just use a solid wire type choke cable (rather than twisted cable), fit it in the existing choke holder in your steering column cowling, and make up a simple retainer bracket on the pump end for the cable sheath, with a little hinged arm for the cable inner to attach to, with a bent metal arm attached which collects the throttle arm and draws it back.  Should be pretty easy to knock up with basic tools.

That what's on the inside of mine. It bolts to the side of gearbox tunnel tucked up under the dash.

There's not a 'kit' as such, parts have to be sourced individually.

In the case of the grommet 531689 (and some of the screws and washers), you have to buy a bag of 10

AFAIK, all of these parts are available from a main dealer or Genuine Parts reseller, to anyone who orders them.

Military parts have always been available from dealers (if you know the Civvy part number) - although, this may have changed.

I'll check this out the next time I'm at my local dealer's parts counter.

From previous experience, I would take anything John Craddock says, with a LARGE pinch of salt.
