AutoControl 3B

I have the components from an AutoControl that I bought from another forum member last year. However between issues with my mechanic, followed by COVID we didn't get it installed. One of the new digital autopilots is finally scheduled to be certified for my model sometime next year, so it no longer makes sense for me to install this one.

It came out of a '79 Dakota, was described as working when removed, and includes the following:
Amplifier - The shaft of the knob was broken in shipment, but I wouldn't think it would be too hard to fix/replace
Roll Servo - 1C363-1-430R (Same motor, just the bracket changes between models from what I found.)
Radio coupler - 1C388M
Relay box 1B440-2

This will work with a G5 for steering controls. Add a GI-275 and it will allow you to pull your vacuum system.

I'd prefer to sell it as a package, but if you need something to keep yours going I'd entertain that. Make me an offer.
