Can we PLEASE stop the crossposting between AH & DIY?  Try asking techy 
hardware questions on DIY first - that's where all the serious techheads

The 4016 is a quad analog switch/multiplexer, which is pin compatible w/ 
the 4066, which corrects some of the faults of the 4016.  The Moog Taurus 
service manual recommends replacing all 4016s w/ 4066s, FWIW.  4066s are 
bog-standard and dirt cheap, so finding them shouldn't be a prob.

Pinout as follows:

In  Ctrl  Out  V+  Gnd

1    13    2   14   7
4     5    3
8     6    9
11   12   10

When Ctrl is high, In & Out are connected.  Very useful.
