Just cut a piece of wood the correct length between the gas pedal and the seat. Did that once when I drove to S. Dakota in my DD that doesn't have cruise.

Audiovox is the brand I installed. It came with a switch to mount on the dash or console. I though used an old 1/2 of an alfa window and hazard barrel switches in a 4 block to control mine.

A couple of pictures with one installed. This unit taps into the coil and brake light for speed and disengangement signals respectively. Also if you hit the clutch and motor is without load...it'll kick out too. The unit is very easy to install. Your greatest challenge will be hooking up the throttle cable to your linkage. The unit comes with several provisions, but you'll likely have to get creative.

Too good to be true?????

Went online and entered "audiovox cruise control" on google, and first thing that came up was "Free kit from Audiovox. Entered my name and stuff, and then stopped. Anyone ever got this Free kit? any catches?

Last year one of the chain auto parts stores - either AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts - was having a closeout on the AudioVox CC. They were no longer going to stock them so they were on sale for ~ $30. Bunch of us motorcycle guys caught wind of that and scoffed up all we could find. Now I have a CC for my bike and one to install in the Alfa (as soon as I get a Roun Tuit...).

John, can you show us any details of the connection to the throttle? please.

OH....I bet you get a bunch of spam.

JCWhittney sells them online for around $150 or so.

Rostra is another manufacturer to consider.

Just make sure if you go with something other than the audiovox that the servo will fit in the car and that the unit will draw input from coil (-) or pulse generator.

Eric:

My throttle bell crank is totally different from yours with the linkages. Mine is cable. What you need to accomplish is:

1. find a way to secure the cruises throttle cable so that it is aligned to pull the spring loaded bell crank.
2. secure the throttle cable to the bell crank so that it won't foul the gas pedal linkage yet allow the cruise servo to rotate the bell crank.

Here is a picture of my setup...but again will be different from yours.

Best Regards,
John M

OK, thanks again. So, the brand to stay with seems to be Audiovox...and the CCS100? I should not gamble with other brands if the audiovox has worked with us guys. Pls confirm this ccs100 as the code...Thanks!

Joe

PS: it is going for $89.00 now

A couple of years ago the OVAROC chapter of AROC did a tech clinic where we installed this exact unit in a Spider. Straightforward, although you will need to make a bracket to mount the unit, and also buy a small vacuum reservoir, such as this one.

Hmmm, Enrique....checked it out...it is $70 more, no model # given though on the JC site, plus $13 for vacuum. Seems like probably an upscale model, dont know. But thanks for pointing out that it is an option!

You guys have been a big help.
