I have $74 into my factory cruise set up. I tried it yesterday. Works like a charm.

Alos recalibrated my speedo for the 35" tires too


I had no idea in 2004. Still works like a charm,though.

Is it the vacuum servo or the electronic control that's different?

Yea, I for got to get more fuses the last time at the yard. Got to get a list made for next week.
I was under the imprssion the 92-96 all had electronic servos. I could be wrong but I believe any of those with vacuum were dealer installed and not the factory.

As far as a difference between 5.0 and 5.8 I did not know that Brad. I hope mine still works after changing my 300-6 to a 351.

A little background first. I have a 1996 F250 7.3 turbo diesel custom (no frills)
How difficult is the addition of a donor factory cruise control to my ride?
This model has the segregated throttle (electronic control).
Any and all ideas are greatly appreciated.
This I have no idea about all the research I did for this thread and my cruise was for gas motors but I am sure someone here can help you. There are some very sharp individuals on here.

Yours is REALLY simple. All you need is a cruise horn pad. DONE

If my aftermarket cruise control goes out, what all do I have to do to install a factory set up?

RIP EVERYTHING that is wired to the aftermarket JUNK out.

Then put in a factory cruise wheel, cruise servo and jumper the Master cyl switch plug. Pretty simple. Alot easier than the aftermarket stuff.

That is assuming you have a 92-96

I did the cruise control horn pad but something is still missing. I think I may need the cruise control servo/amplifier assy. Is this thing the same on a diesel as it is on a gas?

On your truck it is fly by wire. meaning there is no throttle cable. A rheostat in the throttle pedal sends signal to the PCM and that till the injectors how much fuel you are looking for. All the cruise does is tell the PCM to hold what speed it is reading when you set it.

Did you check for any missing /blown fuses /relay?

There may be a relay missing. I will check with my Ford guy tomorrow. Thanks for your help.

FOUND IT; I forgot about the SPOUT for the master cylinder.
Cruise now works like a champ.

Sorry to add on to an old thread, but this seems to be the most comprehensive add CC thread so far.

What are we lookin at to add CC to a 1990 F250 Diesel Custom? I assume this is vacuum canister, but is it going to be pre-wired?

Also, what does SPOUT mean?

I added CC to my 96 Cherokee a few years ago... Jeep actually sold a retrofit kit that came with the steering wheel control panel, actuator, cable and instructions. Wish Ford had that!

SPOUT (SPark OUTput) connector which on gas models is a small 2 pin jumper that happens to work great for jumping out the brake switch on trucks without it. Ive never added speed control to a diesel so I can't help you there.

Absolutely just find one that some retard hasnt cut the cable on and grab the cruise servo from under the hood right by the master cyclinder. The being as you have a standard there may be a cluth switch you need to grab and a mastercyclinder switch. I just grabbed the master cyclinder switch and plugged it into my wire harness. If my MC ever fails Ill replace it with the one for the switch.
