The engine does have a mechanical throttle, no drive-by-wire setups

units that ran off a spark plug wire. It did a very good job of
regulating engine/vehicle speed. I have looked for those, but all I'm

greatly appreciate it. One question I do have about these units, will
they keep the engine at a constant enough speed?

Look for an Audiovox CCS100 Universal Cruise Control. It works either
from a connection to the coil or a magnet kit on the driveshaft. The
unit is $00 - $40 depending on where you find it. This vendor is
$6 plus shipping:

How about buying a welder-generator instead?
Sometimes you can find a good deal on a used one.

I think I've looked at this one, but I don't believe I've ever read
anything saying it would pick up off the coil. Thanks.

Here is one that gives these options:
Select ECM, AC Generator, Magnets, or Pulse Sender as Speed Signal Source
I've never used it just found it in another forum.
