I Ended up finding some missing pieces that I didn't have, like mounting Brackets, missing tags, linkages for the throttle and the brake release switch

I ended up pulling the Cruise Controller apart, the Bowden cable is to short for my RHD Plymouth and manage to find a longer cable, the alligator teeth are going
to be taken off the old cable and put onto the newer longer cable

The Small electric motor is of to a Auto Electrician friend to replace the wiring and servicing for the electric motor, I managed to buy a
copy of a 1961 Chrysler Imperial Service Manual Supplement, which has about 18 pages just on the Chrysler Perfect Circle Auto Pilot
which has become very handy to have with also all the great contribution from people on this thread

Very nice work Roberto - for full detailing, the pull spring was painted ligh blue (baby blue).

Drive two long nails in a plank with the appropriate distance so that the loops are stretched out somewhat and spraypaint the spring - you'll like it!

Yes, that will do, but you could also Google Motip 45150 for Pictures - that's the one I found to be a dead ringer to the remaining fragments on my spring

Big Thank You to Gary from Canada with the missing pieces, I now have the correct brackets, a new longer Bowden cable which will be replacing the short Bowden Cable connected to the Cruise Controller, Just wondering, if Greg
or Sven can post some photos of their Perfect Circle Auto Pilot mounted in there engine bay especially the brackets and linkages, I would really appreciate it.

The Mechanism has been cleaned up and sent to my friend who will fix the wiring on the electric motor and then test it on the mechanism and the cable has been taken to a cabling place to add the alligator teeth and ball joint end.

Can someone tell me about the wiring harness on this, when i got the unit it looks like the wires have been cut off at one end, please see photo...Thanks

Just sent you some Pictures Roberto. Make a new Cable harness and use the Contact only - see my Electric drawing in page 1.

If the button on the Control is a "push-in" button, then perhaps it's best to use a hydraulic safety switch, or, if difficult to find a NC hydraulic switch - mount a second mechanical one.

Thanks Sven for the photos, I will post some up later on, I have a mechanical safety Switch, would that be sufficient for the job, my controller has the "push in button"

The early Auto-Pilot all seems to have the "push-in button", which makes it impossible to pull out the switch is something fails.
My guess is that this was the reason for the extra hydraulic safety switch from the beginning.

Let's imagine that the contacts in the mechanical switch sticks (burns) together - then you would only have the ignition switch that can disengage the latch in the servo.

The later Auto-Pilot has the "pull-out" control button, which makes it easy to push in the button for to disengage the latch.
This means that the later Auto-Pilot has the following disengaging functions;

The mechanical switch
The hydraulic safety switch
Pushing in the control button
Switching off the ingition

The older Auto-Pilot has the following disengaging functions;

The mechanical switch
The hydraulic safety switch
Switching off the ingition

I would install a double mechanical switch for the extra safety on an older Auto-Pilot with "push-in button"
That is, if it's difficult to find a NC (Normal Closed) hydraulic switch.

That said, my Auto-Pilot has never had any disengaging problems.
I have one mechanical switch and no hydraulic switch since I have the "pull-out button"

Does the right switch has 1 or 2 prongs? If only 1, then it's a grounding switch.

If this is the correct one for the earlier Auto-Pilot, then it seems like the Electric drawing I edited is not applicable.
