I just got my A\C (Vintage Air) charged up in my 66 and when the Compressor comes on the car will idle down low enough to die.Can i get some type of solenoid to kick up the idle when this happens?My 1978 camaro had one.

All you need is the solenoid for your carb application.

If you have a Holley, a unit of a Holley equipped vehicle like a Ford truck would be the part your looking for.

Wire the solenoid into your a/c clutch power.

Or this!
Holley solenoid 46-74

brackets:
Holley 20-9 http://classicstore.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?autofilter=1&part=HLY-20-9&N=700+115&autoview=sku

or Holley 20-47

I priced them also.The ones from Holley and Edelbrock will cost about $100.00 I went to Ebay and found an aftermarket Solenoid for $16.00 including shipping.I will just have make my own bracket.
I asked Vintage Air what their thoughts on this were and said i should not need one.They said their compressors were effecient and it should not hamper the idle guality.
