The device under the pedal is the kickdown switch. I have initiated 1st gear shifts using two relays and a pressure switch in the governor test port. The gear shift is initiated by the release of the brake pedal (similar to the 1978-80 300SD) and kickdown is released by relay with the arrival of gov pressure at 10kph unless your foot is on the floor by that time. (bg)

Valve body kits are available to accomplish such things hydraulically.
