83 Eagle cruise control
« on: July 10, 2018, 05:24:24 PM »
Cruise just went out on my 83.  Checked the vacuum lines and all are connected.  Have an extra known good control box and still no good.  Diagram shows a tach generator...anyone know where it is and what it looks like?  Any quick way to check the turn signal control?  Thanks.

The speed sensor should be attached in between the 2 speedo cables.    Go to section 1H in the manual for good trouble-shooting info.
