Good afternoon Gents,
I've recently replaced my throttle cable due to it pulling out of the clevis on the pedal end. With the old cable I had a moderate bind in cold weather and the cable adjustment ferrule at the injector pump loosened constantly allowing the cable to go slack, causing the truck to lose power. The new cable has the same moderate bind in cold weather and the cable goes slack within a few days. I've wrapped a loop of .032 steel safety wire around the ferrule retaining tangs and the abutment bracket, which appears to keep the cable securely in place.
My question: who else have had similar issues with their throttle cables, what was your remedy, and has anyone heard of a retaining clip that LR later retrofitted to the 300 Tdi?
Here's the workshop manual procedure for cable adjustment:
And the cable replacement:
