    I'm going to install a/c in the truck here soon, but I need to know what the bracket and selinoid on the quadrajet and that kicks up the idle when the a/c is turned on is called and possibly where to get one.

    i have one or a few of them, 70s 80s style it bolts to side of carb front left hand side with two screws
    you adjust it with a wrench it has a hex headed shaft where it contacts accel linkage front side they are common find them mostly on the early 80s caprice and such

    Thermal idle control switch. It is part of the emmissions stuff.

    kicks idle up for a/c compressor kick in i like to put them on all my vehicles so i can de energize it before shutting it off so it wont diesel/run on when hot and such, i set idle screw on carb to lower than stock so throttle blades will shut down to lower than can idle with and use the solenoid to set my regular idle speed, flip it on, hit the pedal once, fire it up

    flip it off, then shut off engine, and wont run on

    isnt what gm designed it for but thats what i use them for,
