dbywaters, can you explain in some more detail how you setup the pulley and throttle pedal in general?
I carefully drilled the vw aluminum cable connector to accept the Toyota cable, the rest was mounting it in a way that it aligned with the mount. Actually pretty simple to do...

I'm not clear on where you sourced the 'vw aluminum cable connector' though.?

Default Connector on TPS

I modified the aluminum bell-crank on the VW TPS to accept the Toyota throttle cable. This required some careful drilling and notching to allow insertion of the cable end, but it seems to work very well.

I'm left to put the info together and say that you must have sourced this bellcrank from another VW since the ALH is a drive-by-wire.

I only mess with TDI's. I'm not versed in all things VW...

Smile Maybe I should have called it something different

What I refer to as a bell crank is the semi circular aluminum piece which the 98 throttle position sending unit is actuated. The TDI I installed is drive by wire, the VW actuator located within the throttle pedal assemble utilizes a short cable connecting the sending unit (cylindrical variable resistor of sorts) to the throttle pedal.
I disassembled the components and using a metal cutting saw I cut apart the bracket which the sending unit is mounted and used only part of the bracket required to mount the sending unit to the inside of the fender.
I then carefully modified the aluminum actuator arm (what I refer to as a "bell crank") that is connected to the position sending unit so could remove the existing cable and accept the Toyota throttle cable end. I will try to post a picture.
Yes, my TDI is drive by wire...

4th fill-up, 31mpg... :-)

Be careful! The potentiometer isn't water proof! I found this out the hard way miles from home.
