Re: Retro fitting of Cruise Control

You really need a copy of the speed control diagram.

Re: It shouldn’t look like this !!

Was that an original wishbone , or a replacement ? I found the rubber boots split on two replacement wishbones after a years use (16,000miles) which wrecked the ball-joint of course. So, I always fitted a thin stainless washer over the boot so that the gap of the clamp area couldn't tear the boot as...

Re: Power steering cooling pipe

When it happened to me I simply connected the return pipe to the other side of the reservoir, not quite as easy as it sounds though. Also, I was surprised at how hot the system runs , so be careful. The very position of the cooling pipe makes it a 'big' job to get access to replace it. My intention ...

Re: Need some serious help please

Well done on your diagnostics, it certainly points to that CPS2 as being the problem.
Strange it should fail though , it only generates a 'pulse' as the 'blade' moves through the gap. Generally a pretty rugged device.

Re: Need some serious help please

External coil details posted off to Tomcat yesterday.
That's it, I have no copies.
I was always able to get working spares for the '94 Probe so never had to resort to the external version but definitely the way to go.
