Is there a correct way to adjust the dashpot solenoid to idle stop screw. The reason I ask is, I will adjust my idle on my carb (Holly 4180) and after a day or so the idle will change. It runs great at 800 RPM, but it will start running at 500 RPM or sometimes at 1200 RPM. I believe it is the dashpot solenoid isn't adjusted right or not working. Any ideas. Thanks.

Do you have an electrically activated solenoid or a simple mechanical dashpot?
If you have an electric solenoid, when is it activated? Any time the key is in Run position? Only when the A/C is turned On?

Electric solenoid. With a separate electric switch attached for AC. No AC in car at the moment. Not sure when the solenoid is active or when it should be.
