My 1983 MCI-9 Cruise Control has never worked.
I'm wondering what it takes to get on operational again.

Anyone ever tackled this problem?

Thanks for the help.

Hummm, believe it's factory, but now that I think about it, not sure.
Not sure what a king looks like.

If it is a Bendix cruise control, operated by air pressure, parts are no longer available. Mine is Bendix, and I am lucky I haven't needed any parts for it yet. I was able to get it working by cleaning up some air lines that were plumbed wrong.

Your's is more likely a King, being later model than my '77. If not, a new King system is about $700.
