    I don't know that anyone has just the diaphragm, or that anyone rebuilds them. As far as I know you'll have to replace the whole cruise servo.

    But by now, they will all be 40+ years old even if they are NOS.
    And, if they are used, they will be as cooked as mine. Hoping someone out there has a solution I’m not seeing right now.

    There may be, but I sure don't know of any, and NOS ones are getting hard to find.

    I took my old inoperative CC unit apart thinking I would hopefully to replace just the diagphram.

    But then again, you're 10X more obstinate than me.

    He has a unique manner that's for sure... he seems OK though to me although I know very little about him.

    He mentioned the booting but didn’t elaborate and I didn’t ask.
