82 310 Cruise Control

I am having a problem with the cruise control on our 82 310. The unit will not engage, this is a new problem as untill recently it worked fine. I have the manual/troubleshooting guide, however I am haveng trouble locating the control/regulator unit to check voltages on the unit. Does anyone know the location of the unit??

On our 345 it is located just above the throttle pedal. I also have lost the use of my cruise control. The company that built them has been bought out and parts are very hard to come by.
Check your sending unit which is mounted on the transmission where the speedo cable comes out. There should be wiring from that point to the unit.

I am saving up my pennies for a "King Cruise"!

There is no "I" in the word "team," but there are four in "Platitude Quoting Idiot!"

I found our Cruise Control Unit on the 310, right up under the dash above the steering wheel mount - what a stupid place to put it! It is virtually impossible to get at, and a quick look at the manual says "adjust it......."?!

So my inoperable CC is definitely on the back burner so to speak. I am sure it is a fuse or something daft like that. It has never worked in my ownership, and the PO's didnít say.

I just need to get at that GM fuse panel on the bulk head - reposition it, so I can see what is going on, THEN possibly sort out the CC. It looks to me that the power is one of those questionable "insert" plugs that push into a fuse holder. There is a vacuum there - somewhere - but I am not sure that is the problem.

Out of interest does anyone know if the vacuum gauges are repairable, mine constantly read the same - it never moves.

Don't take life so seriously.... it is not permanent!

Found the controller, right where you guys said it would be. Your right Chuckles, the location does leave something to be desired. The problem in my case however, turned out to be the vacume hose. Which is connected to the vacume speed control (well that's what I'll all it) located on the front right of the engine block by the carb. I reconnected the hose and all is well. Finally a simple fix. Kind of scary actually!!! Thanks for your help.
