    Anyone know a part # or official name for it? Mine's taken a dive, and the wife is griping about having to turn the A/C off while waiting at stoplights and other periods of idling - I'm too lazy to put a hand throttle in, and the boneyards want to sell me an entire carb, so it looks like time to purchase a new one[​IMG]

    Idle speed solenoid. Should kick the idle up and extra 100 rpm when you put a new one in. Your GM dealer should have that. Heck if I can get the switch for my 4 wheel drive light in my NP208 than that shouldn't be a problem.
