If you need any more help I have access to all motor data, and can pull up diagrams and picturs and all that jazz for you.

[update]: nevermind on the allmotordata, looks like I lost my account.

OK so what happened with the cruise control? The suspense is killing me!!! Could be a wire came loose in one of the connectors? Sometimes the little metal connector will slide back out of the plastic thus no longer making connection. Is the speedometer working? Cruise won't work if speedometer doesn't work. Still a great job even if the cruise doesn't work! You can live just fine without cruise!! Gotta have heat/defrosters in winter! Here the car will NOT pass state inspection without operable defroster! You did GREAT! A real bear of a job! I would rather pull the heads replace headgaskets and, timing chain than replace the heater core! But, that's just me!
