You really cannot bypass the idle solenoid. It is an electric idle jet that only works when +12V is applied to it. If you hook a +12V keyswitched source to it, it will work when the car is running, which is all you need.

If you want to bypass it completely, you have to replace it with a standard idle jet, but I do not know of any standard ones that fit. Otherwise, change the top of the carb to one without the electric idle jet.

Good Luck,

The solenoid on my carb got stuck/broke so the car would die at idle.

I took out the idle solenoid (someone recomended this to me) and

snipped off the solenoid plunger thing (?) then reinstalled. This makes

the idle solenoid obsolete, I have been driving for over one year like

this and my car has only dieseled maybe three times, and this is only

when it has been driven hard and hot and I shut the engine off too

quickly. worked great for me!
