I think that looking at cable movement and run for the throttle has merit as well. There should be adjustments you can make on the length of travel? Does your diesel have glow plugs? Still wondering what's different when the diesel first starts. Otherwise, the engine runs smoothly and quietly (as quietly as a diesel can) or does it seem louder than before the "runaway" event?
