Agreed, But... that looks very much like a hand throttle (as used on every engine on 90/110/130 pre Td5)

You pull it out to the desired engine speed, then turn it slightly and it'll lock, there's a kind of herringbone pattern of "speeds" you can lock in. It should just connect to an extra arm screwed to the top of the FIP (on a diesel)


Looking closer at that picture, and the colour of the floor/bulkhead, it looks like the shot of a generic military rover. FFR's had this hand throttle for fast idling to charge the batteries.

makes a great cruise control too... as long as you don't need to stop in an emergency!!! (so DON'T do it kids, it was a joke....)

I have this on my 85 110 with 2.5NA and it is a multi position hand throttle like Jim described.

I use it to warm my truck up (read: the internal engine workings as the cabin only gets warm in the summer).

The symbol means pull out the cable knob and twist to lock in position, then twist back and let go to release.
It was nothing to do with application.
Cables of this type had multiple uses, so all of you on this thread have stated correct usages for this symbol and thus have correct answers depending on the scenario.

Funny, I've seen that symbol on all the chokes I've ever seen/ owned... It's the butterfly in the Venturi in the carb... Restricts air flow.... I.e. Faster idling speed...They were all push pull application... No twist involved.. And yes on a diesel it would act as a shut down...
