I'm pretty sure that with the Pre Airbag wheels (ie EA, B & D) you are restricted to the standard wheel or the GT / Ford Option Momo. Try and find one of them - very rare!.

I don't know if Momo does any other wheel to suit cruise controls in that model range - yes they do them for EF onwards with airbags but for your's - none too sure. Have you tried the Momo Web Site? Maybe try Roman Autotech in Sydney.

Cheers

Couldn't you get something made up to incorporate the cruise buttons for the new wheel? Might be cheaper than spending $600 on a GT wheel.

I believe you can - I also believe Ford still has some original cruise buttons lying around. Or someone did, they are out there.

from what i've seen it is possible to recreate the circuitry that the cruise buttons use, and the wiring is found here - www.dalidesign/hbook/ccwire.html

i sat with a multitester before and checked waht resistance the buttons used, but i wasnt getting constant results. all i need to do is find out exactly what resistors are needed, and it should be very easy to mock it up.. only thing is finding a place for the new stitches, and it wont have that oem look.

94_ED, how much did you pay? coz i was gonna put a momo wheel on anyway, so i'll already be paying thru the nose.
