CPT autopilot II manual?

I recently bought a CPT autopilot II, a Cruisair carry on A/C, a jabsco head, and a marine radio for $50, all working, according to the guy who sold it to me. The carry on is working, very cold, so everything else is just gravy, or trash. I was messing around with the CPT at my house and the thing seems to work fine when attached to a 12v motorcycle battery. Its a model from around 1990, from the info I had found. What I cant find is the manual for the darned thing. If anyone knows where I can get the manual, or if they have the manual saved, let me know. Thanks!

Actually, I just contacted the customer service at CPT and they are going to e-mail me one. Really nice guy, hope it works well.

Had 2 CPTs over a 6 or 7 year period.

They are strong, but very poor at holding a course.

Don't use it if you need a steady course..All of a sudden the stupid
thing will do a hard-over and change course 90 degrees, right in front of traffic...

The CPT II will do a pretty good job of steering if the boat is balanced. I use one as a backup autopilot on a 45' boat, and its handled over 30 knots of wind.
