injector pump questions

I have a 77 300D NA car.
I have a hard time starting the car, and I know it is in need of engine work, or replacement.
When I was trying to start the car last week, I finally pushed the stop lever down and got the car to start. So the IP is overfueling the engine at start up. I assumed that this was due to the manual idle control wire being frozen so I cut the wire, then it would not run, but would start.
I then adjusted the idle up so the engine would idle. Now I am having the same starting issue as before.
So, How is the best way to set up this injection pump and cable when the new one gets here next week.
Also why does this car need this cable, where the one for the turbocharged SD doesn't.
Thanks

Also, IF I put the engine from my SD into this car, can I use that cable location for a throttle cable, because the original linkage will not go past the turbo.

no. the mess on the valve cover binds when you try to pull the lever instead of pressing the throttle peddal.

It doesn't actually need the cable, but if you don't have it, you won't be able to adjust the idle speed when cold or when the a/c is on. The turbo engines have pneumatic governors that adjust the idle speed automatically. It also doesn't make sense that the engine wouldn't start if it's being "over-fueled." On any fully operational engine, you can start it with the pedal to the floor.

So it sounds like my issue is really related to the engine, and not the IP set up.
Thanks. Now I have to figure how to put the engine from the 83 SD into this 77 D.

Can a turbo IP function acceptably on a non turbo engine?

thanks
