In a few other threads around here the big thing seems to be erratic idle that is a giveaway for the EGR being faulty. We don't have any of that; it purrs away at about 600rpm constantly.

To ask a dumb question - where does the throttle cable go to? Is it possible to take up any slack like my petrol/carb days or am I totally up the wrong tree with this?
