1100 Cruise control swap

Postby dvcruz » Sat Mar 19, 2011 12:11 pm



Anyone out there ever take a cruise control system from a 1100 Aspy and put it on a 1100 Interstate? Common sense tells me it should be a no brainer, but I don't know if the Aspys have extra brackets welded on or plastic pieces that would make a switch too difficult. You know how it is when it seems like it would be real simple to do something and then reality steps in to prove you wrong.
Specifically, I'm looking at two '83 models.
Thanks.

I don't believe any extra brackets or anything were added to accommodate the cruise in the 83 Aspy - it was just "hacked in" after the fact, so you should be good moving it to the other 83 model.

Thanks WA. I'm still thinking about the swap but will probably not do it.
