Default 82 resume solenoid

I have an '82 Collector's Edition and I need a resume solenoid. Is there any place that rebuilds them? The usual parts suppliers have the modules, but not that solenoid. I know it's shot cause I had it working a few years ago by freeing it up with a little oil and some brute force but it quit working @ 1 month after. Found one in a junkyard in Texas, but it was no good. I'm all about keeping it stock and in working order and don't want to bypass it. Column switch still works. Took me a year to find someone to make rear glass hinges that worked. Hope this doesn't take that long! Thanks All. Keep 'em on the road.

Just get a remanufactured cruise control transducer unit. They're easy to find, don't require a core and not particularly expensive.

I'm one for DIY whenever possible/practical but at time you just have to give into those who have purchased internal pieces of assemblies in a one-time bulk buy and understandably do not sell them by the unit. Such may do in-house production/remanufacturing on a small scale and again and understandably do not sell to individuals.

1) They don't come with the solenoid.

2)I went thru 3 rebuilt POS units before I found a NOS unit that worked perfect.(Just sayin...)

Thanks for the input guys. Big2Bird...I assume you mean you went through 3 modules before finding one? If you found that many solenoids......where?

I had 3 rebuilt Cardone units in a row all off calibration, didn't work, slipped. etc. NOS GM unit worked perfect.

I have a solenoid, but you would have to switch brackets I think.

Not GM, but NOS aftermarket. (Is that a thing?)

Not tested for vacuum, but coil is good. I "may" have checked the vacuum. Can't remember.

Well, spring has finally arrived and things are drying up. Took it out for a spin today and cruise works great! Thanks Bird!

Except for the mounting tabs, that part looks very similar to the wiper switch/solenoid on the back of early C3 tachometer housings.
