thanks hooked it up and idles and drive like a new truck!!!If the idle control solenoid isn't energized, the carb won't get enough fuel. It normally (in concert with the emissions computer and vacuum switch) cuts off partial fuel to the carb to prevent backfire during decelerating, saves fuel during deceleration and improves engine braking performance when decelerating by cutting off some of the fuel.
It also prevents dieseling at shut off.
Keep it? Heck yeah.
