Here's how to replace your Super Duty cruise control servo for cheap!

Disclaimer:

Before anyone asks, I am not selling cruise control servos, I am simply a forum member who figured out a cheap way to fix my truck. Further, I do not endorse ebay or any of their vendors. I would also like to add that everyone should do their own research and that I am in no way responsible for anything that goes wrong if you decide to try this!




Any way, I have some good news for anyone who needs to replace the speed control on their early model, gas powered Super Duty truck! I recently discovered that the cruise control on my 1999 F-250 Super Duty V10 wasn’t working. After looking into it, I found that the cruse control servo (A.KA. "speed control servo") was seized up and needed to be replaced. Unfortunately, buying the “correct” servo was going to cost over $430 which really wasn’t an option for me so I started looking at alternatives.

Armed with several years’ worth of factory service manuals and wiring diagrams, I determined that the 1999 SD speed control servo only differed slightly from trucks up to 2002. I also discovered that the newer style servo was used on several 2000+ model year ford cars. Since the “car” part could be purchased for less than 10% the cost of the “truck” part, this was clearly attractive to me.

After swapping everything around and verifying that it works, I am pleased to confirm that part YF1F-9C734-EB which was originally for a Ford Taurus 3.0L 2000-2003 will work perfectly in a gas powered 1999 through 2002 Super Duty truck! Its very possible that this also applies to trucks newer than 2002 but I have no way to verify it. Since there’s very little info on this subject, I created the following video to detail the swap. Enjoy!

Think I can do something similar where I get a $350 ford Taurus engine to replace my 7.3L diesel engine when it finally goes? I mean if you could do it with cruise control servos surely you can do it with engines.... :P

Good video. Good "hack." many simple-function parts are all the same across most cars of similar eras, so there's bound to be others like this.
