I need a little help. Is there anything that controls the rpms on the carburetor? Before I took it off to try a different (carburetor,)when I turned the a/c on it would dump up the rpms?? 350 good wrench crate motor elderbrock 1405 manual choke or is it vacuum that control the rpms?

Here's what you need. It's called an idle up solenoid. This one is by Edelbrock, specifically for their carbs. Damn is it pricey!

holy cow that's expensive,that's the same universal solenoid that I'm running on my Holley.it's from Holley and it's cheaper than that.if i was in your shoes I'd pick up https://www.summitracing.com/parts/hly-46-74 and make my own bracket using one of the Holley(also cheaper)brackets as something to start with.

I think that Summit one is even a little steep. I used one off a parts carb Q-Jet that was laying around and made a bracket to work with the Edelbrock carb on my ....ahem.... non-G Body. The drop base on the air cleaner housing all but hides the entire thing. It cost me nothing but an afternoon in the shop which there is no place I'd rather be anyway.
