I'm not looking at a diagram of your mower, but in general, the cruise is just a lever that holds the transmission linkage in the set position until you hit the brake or indicate you want it elsewhere.

Looking at the parts list, Cheese is right. You just get up to the speed you want, set it and lock it. Stays until you hit the brake. It's that simple.
