This is my setup with the magnets and sensor. The mounting bracket for the sensor is bolted to the back of the gearbox where there's a couple of tapped but unused bolt holes. 2 minutes in the shed and I found a bolt that did the job. This is how it has come up:



And this is the actuator that does the throttle work. Three wires and a vacuum line:



^ That fits in very well and also makes use of the liberty's cruise cable lever on the throttle body. Works well!

Last time I drove her the cruise was surging, not badly but enough to annoy me so I'll have to check that out tomorrow - I think it could be magnets moving on the wire so that they're not 180 degrees apart... Will have to do a troubleshoot tomorrow. I should also get around to tidying up the wiring as I want to put it in some conduit or the like.

Otherwise cruise is awesome on the freeway!
