Breakaway Cruise Control
I replaced the original Rostra cruise control a few years back with an Audiovox that was vacuum operated and got its speed signal from a magnetic pickup on the drive shaft. It has been giving my intermittent failures, so time to do something.

So I bought a new Rostra 250-1223 Universal Electronic Cruise. No vacuum required. Works off the VSS signal from the Allison 2000. Set the pulses per mile to 18,000 and we now have cruise.

Also found a leak in the a/c lines for the dash air, so life in the Barth is good again. Working cruise and cool air is really great.

A cruise control is on my list, but I have a gas 454 so is a vacuum unit my only option, looks like the one I have is an after market unit.

The Rostra works on gas also. Also will work on magnetic pickup.

You can get an aftermarket cruise from Dakota digital. Needs no vacuum. Not too pricey.
