That should be the ZF kick down cable.

Is your Rover an automatic? If So then it is the kick down linkage. Read up on how to adjust it. If not then it is most likely a "Hand" throttle cable.

No it's a 5 speed manual. Seems to be driving/accelerating fine. I'm wondering if the previous owner did some work to the throttle body and left it disconnected

There is no said "throttle body/butterfly" on a diesel. Follow the cable to inside the cab and most likely there is a knob(Push/Pull) to raise or lower the throttle if you were running some type of implement(PTO).
