    Comments about Edelbrock Performer Series; Throttle Solenoid & Bracket:

    this is an Edelbrock solenoid that is suppose to increase the idle rpm's when the A/C is turned on. I installed it on my Edelbrock carburator, which you would think it would work on, but the solenoid is soo weak, that when energized it just bumped up to the linkage and sat there. Doing nothing to increase RPM's.

      Comments about Edelbrock Performer Series; Throttle Solenoid & Bracket:

      These have been around for a long time. Well engineered, fit and work as expected. I'm sure the technology behind them matured long ago so it's hard to believe they cost so much.

          Hi Ray, glad to assist you! This throttle solenoid includes 1- idle solenoid, 1- bracket, 1- carb stud/nut/washer, 1- solenoid nut, 1- special lock washer. Remove front driver’s side carb stud and replace with longer stud supplied in this kit. Place bracket over the stud and install nut and washer on stud. Position solenoid in bracket and install large washer (locking tabs face the solenoid) and locknut. Tighten firmly, but be careful not to over-tighten due to the large size (1-1/4") of the wrench used. Bend locking tabs on special washer over flats of the nut to prevent loosening. Attach the wire from the solenoid to the existing idle compensator wiring connector. If connector is not present, you may splice a wire from the +12 volt wire supplying power to the air conditioning compressor (check with voltmeter or test light first). Use a 1/4" female receptacle and at least 18-20 gauge wire. Some receptacles will require that the locking tab on the solenoid be flattened before the receptacle will fit.

      • Q:

        1990 Mazda Mx6. The motor runs great, but when I come to a stop and am in gear it dies at a red light or stop sign. I have to push it into N. I know it has to do with the Idle control, but I don't know what it is called. It is a little lever by the Idle Air control MTR. What is that little lever called so that I can order it at advanced auto. Sue

          This is basically used for throttle only. Some GM vehicles have a similar item called a carburetor solenoid. It has adjustments for low, and high idle settings. In your particular case with the info you have provided it would tend to more likely be a carburetor, or injector issue. Computer systems could also be an issue with the computer, or faulty wiring that would not be sending/getting the proper signals for the system to work properly. Troubleshooting the problem is critical. If unsure, but you would like to handle it yourself, go to your local library. In the Business, Science, Technology section you will find all types of auto manuals. Look for the manufacturers service manuals, or (better yet) the Mitchell Automotive series manual for your vehicle. You can't take these out of the library, so be prepared to search for the appropriate sections, and then copy them on the library copy machine. The simple parts changing of yesteryear is long gone.
