My 3200 is a long way from getting back on the road, but throttle body is one of the bigger issues. Are these still available?

David Askew's man still rebuilds them, I had mine done by him last year, never missed a beat since!

Thanks Dave
Are they proper contactless - like hot film / hot wire ? Rather than the huge restrictive flap turning a wiper on resistive windings?

No, there up to date contactless. I couldn't believe the difference in engine performance, complete with a nearly new original Bosch pedal pot bought from Lozzer ;)

The engine now idles around 1000 rpm constant, this must have been very similar to how the engine behaved when they were new nearly 20 years ago!

hmmm. I might have a trip to Davie Askew soon to browse some stuff for the Levante. Will chat to him about the 3200 throttle body.
