Is there a FADEC or EEC system that controls the CF6-50C2 engines on a DC-10-30 or is it an entirely mechanical process?

EEC is a Pratt term; GE use FADEC exclusively (at least on the commercial engine side) to designate their digital electronic engine controls.

In either model, a hydro-mechanical fuel control is used for backup in secondary mode (loss of all electrical power). I'm sure other engines of newer design also incorporate such similar backups.
