1993 Bluebird TC2000 Cummins 5.9L

Someone please buy this bus from dry, rust free AZ! It has the legendary 1st gen 5.9L Cummins diesel and AT545 transmission, and Air conditioning! It's also pre-smog requirement, meaning you don't need to smog it!

These are hard to find now, especially at this price.

So I have the 5.9 l diesel but it's the turbo straight line 6 diesel! Yeah she can run. Has a nice Allison transmission no problems. I paid 9 grand for this baby she's black and white and 36 ft long. Now comes the long journey of turning it into a tiny home which right now is pretty livable even with no build out yet. So here's my question, I want to install cruise control on this baby. The gas pedal is quite stiff and it would be wonderful to have cruise control on this when I go for it 2 hour drive etc. So can anybody give me an ideal of how to go about this. I have absolutely no knowledge about this bus or how to even install Cruise or where I can even get anything like this. So anything you can tell me would definitely help out.

Question number two, I pushed on the gas pedal and it was very tight there are no kinks in the cable however recently the little black grommet that was solid plastic broke off the back of the gas pedal releasing the cable from the pedal and now I have to use vise grips to drive the bus. That way at least the pedal, when pushed on, still pulls up the cable. So if anybody can give me some advice on how to fix this it would be wonderful as well.

Just so you know what I've tried and this is at the advice of a bus mechanic, fishing weights which simply smashed into a flat round circle LOL. I also tried going to Lowe's and picking up a piece of plastic that would fit in the hole where the original piece broke out. I cut a side out of the plastic so it can slip over the cable. But that just shattered when I pushed on the gas pedal as well. However a small set of vice grips clamping the top of the cable just above the back of the gas pedal arm is doing just fine for a temporary fix. I look forward to your comments.
