I believe it is a plug to get more rack travel, but I dont know the specifics.

Its the plug in the end of the pump, I believe its used for assembly purposes :shrug: On any pump besides a 215 you can replace the plug with a 2095, "mack" plug or shim it with washers to gain an extra 2mm of rack travel.

There only around $15 at a cummins dealer. I'm sure a pump shop could get you one, but a cummins is probably the best bet. The number is 1413462095-00 according to that picture

The plug is what limits the allowable rack travel if the AFC and plate are modified, the 2095 is 2mm deeper than the 2000. Find a Bosch dealer PN#1413462095, torque it to 45ft/lb.

PDR sells them too for the same price, so they are pretty easy to come by. Note what smokem said too, about the AFC and Plate, remember if both of those aren't modified you won't be seeing any benefit from the Plug, because they will be limiting rack travel before do its thing.

You can put it on a 215 pump just the same as any other pump!

But Ive heard with a 4k GSK and running without a plate could cause it to stick at WOT or somethin.

You can install it on an 887 or 913 pump, but it is detrimental. The rack plug in itself will not allow the rack to hang, however a 4K GSK and a #0 full forward has the tendancy to cause the governor arm to hang under the plate.
