    Here is the throttle pull and lock in my 83 diesel. It works by pulling out and then twisting the knob clockwise which locks it in place and keeps the engine at whatever rpm.

    The trucks that were automatic transmission had their overdrive switch mounted here. In the diesel motor, there would be a switch for idle up. And in the non-USA models, there would be a switch here for the fog lights.

    This might be one of the reasons that the diesels (all seem to have the throttle up) were never offered with an automatic in the 79-83 models in the US.
