Re: lights...and cruise control
- Thanks for the advice. I now have intermittent operation of my high beams. That's better
One other problem..
My cruise control is not hooked up. No vacuum line to the diaphram. My car is a decent car-
-not a rat--all clean underhood. The only vacuum line missing is one from the bottom of
the aircleaner and the cruise control diaphram. I connected these two. Still does not seem to
have enough vacuum to operate the cruise. Is this where the cruise control vacuum line is
supposed to run? If anyone knows, please pass it on. And yes, I am looking for a shop
- Don't mess with the cruise till you get the manual. If you get it
hooked to the wrong spot you could get yourself in serious trouble.
The diaphragm hose goes to a T that goes to the brake pedal and to the
little gearbox thing on the firewall with the speedo cables in it.
There is several fittings on that unit and a few more T's. Ultimately
the vacuum source for the whole works is a T in the intake manifold on
the back passenger side. The same T feeds vacuum to the sensor in the
air cleaner and from there to the door motor in the snorkel of the air
cleaner. Again, make sure you get a copy of the manual, you dont want
to have that thing suck in and 'floor it' on you.
I posted a 1976 cruise diagram in the files section. It's a word doc.
They are similiar to 1972. You can get a 1972 shop manual and Fisher
Body manual from USA Parts Supply 304-724-6600. Web is
They advertise for them $58.95 in Hemmings Motor News. Get a copy of
this publication for $6.00 at Barnes and Noble or Books a Million or
other magazine racks. It has sources of things Cadillac as well as
other makes. I may also post a cruise diagnosis sheet as well.
