Default 6v92- no power (Valve in Cruise Control Stuck)

Today, I started my coach and everything looked great and sounded good. Plenty of air, oil press good, water temp good, but when I stepped on accelerator- no smoke, no power. The engine at idle will eventually come up to governed rpms- no smoke. Checked the air filter- just cleaned it, saw the turbo spinning, Racor is in the white- Called Bim and he said that the valve in the cruise control might be stuck. It was. That valve controls the Williams Air throttle. I rapped on it a couple times and Brenda gave it the gas-- lots of smoke!! I'm in business. We made it home, no problems and enjoyed giving some smoke to those little cars with loud radios.
So- if this happens to anyone- that valve is possibly the culprit. I'm either going to get a rebuild kit or new valve this coming week. Who knows, I may get a job somewhere that I need the coach for.

Thanks, Ernie,
Will keep it in mind and have Ralph do something (Like maybe change the cruise out to a King Controls) when we get back in the midwest.

Ralph just told me there is a rebuild kit for that. Joe Losh has the numbers and I'll contact Joe and post the results.
