Subject: '77 FC Cruise Control on the blink...Need help.

Hi everyone! I have a '77 FC which has a vacuum type cruise control system that has stopped working. The pump under the passenger seat still spins when I press the cruise button on the turn signal stalk, but there seems to be no vacuum. Does any body out ther have any experience with either fixing or replacing this unit? Any help would be appreciated. By the way, what are those little screw-on glass jars on the vacuum pump for? Are they supposed to hold oil or some other fluid?
Mine are empty.....Thanks in advance. Stan in Pa.

Stan,
My understanding is these are no longer available nor are parts. They most common method of repair is to replace it with a totally electronic unit. Hope this helps. No faster than these things are I just use a brick. Toss it on the pedal when I start and kick it off when I get where I am going. :-) DanT

Stan:

I have two of those pumps, one without a motor which I'll happily send to you. I'll try sending email.

Jeff: I heard you very good on cruise controls: i have a 1983 fc-35 the cruise was disconnected when i bought it. where is the vacuum pump located? I guess any 12 volt vacuum pump would work. The control is not hooked to the throttle lever, does the cruise control allow the lever to slide when the foot throttle is depressed?
I thank you for any help you can give me i would like to have it working.

I bought the ROSTA Ultra cruse modified the connectors to use the existing wiring speed sensor and controls and it works great!
