Part no. request

Does anyone know the part no for the throttle lever assembly that bolts to the top of the fuel pump on a 300 tdi.

The lever has 4 holes in a row at one end and bolts to the throttle lever at the other end.

This lever is what operates the kick down.

Cheers Rob.

What difference does it make connecting the kick down cable to one of the 4 holes then?

(I've got a Tdi autibox sat in the garage waiting to go into my 90!)

Depending on which hole you use will affect how much throttle you need to make it kick-down - closer or further from the pivot point - the further away from the spindle, the more the cable is pulled for any given increase in throttle setting and the sooner the kick-down.

Ahhh.... so, say for example, you've got a nice torqey 2.8 TGV then you could set it to kick down with a small amount of throttle, and if you have an asthmatic 2.5 NA diesel then you'd set it to kick down with more revs?

and i suppose it's personal driving preferance too?
