Cruise Control Feedback Signal

My cruise on the '83 300D does not hold speed, but rather when engaging the cruise with the stalk, the cruise will engage take over the accelerator.
But, it is up to warp speed... It never levels off, just continues to increase speed. There is no hesitation and the resultant acceleration is steady. I must cut it off manually, both the stalk & brake will cut off the cruise.

Where is the speed feedback come from. I believe there is a signal generated within the speedo/instrument cluster. Is this the signal I am missing??

I have a line on a instrument cluster takeout and was thinking of getting the cruise operating once again.

Experience is something you get, Just after you needed it....
