Hi handy,

not sure about the vacuum plumbing in a 92 GQ (I have an AP160 fitted to my GU TD42T), but trace the output from your vacuum pump. Should end up feeding a canister/reservoir or similar. Out of said canister there should be feeds to the brake and clutch servo units. In my case, I spliced a T-piece into the feed to the clutch servo - works a treat!

In my GU, the canisters (there are 2) are located on the passenger side near, but not on, the firewall (which is where I located the cruise control actuator).

Hope this helps...

I Teed mine into the vacuum tube feeding the power assisted clutch, line to the power brakes would be Ok too.
92 GQ will have vacuum pump on back of the alternator, and may or may not have power assist on the clutch depending on model.
Hope that helps,

I fitted this cruise control to my LC 80 series, and plumbed the vacuum line onto the brake booster hose. Works a treat and has had no discernable effect on the brake booster
Those who say something cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

I got the AP50 from K-mart when it was on special.
Yes it works well, even in my manual car, though it won't change gears in that case;-)
Economy is worse if I leave it on when the road gets into hilly terrain and I'm too lazy to shift down - the 6.2 Chevvie has enough grunt to climb some hills in fifth gear.
Economy should be fine with an automatic gearbox.

The reason I got the gadget is to be able to relax the right foot from time to time to avoid knee cramps. The troopy's driving position is not the most ergonomical for long distance driving.
