As an after thought, I checked the voltage at the three wire connector that goes to the carb. It measured only a little more than 5 volts. I assume I should be getting 12 volts. I suspect this might be the source of my problem as the idle shut-off solenoid might not be opening.
I'm not overjoyed at wrestling with that rat's nest of wires under the dash and neither Chilton nor Haynes has a wiring diagram that exactly matches my car. A suggestion from someone who has conquered a similar problem would be appreciated. Is there a specific relay or connection that tends to corrode that I should look for first? Thanks for any help.

But looking through my Haynes manual, it shows how to check the voltage to the automatic choke and the value on the meter shown is 6 volts.
Now I'm discouraged. The voltage I'm getting to the connector may be ok after all. I expected to see battery voltage and I can't see any device on my wiring diagram which would reduce the voltage.
What is the proper voltage to the plug for the carb? I'm new to this group and any help would be appreciated.

You should also be able to measure the resistance of the solenoid coil to see if that is ok.

The carb connector has 3 wires- ADS, choke and vent valve solenoid. This connector has the 5 volts when I checked it with the ignition on. Does anyone know the voltage that these are supposed to run on? Maybe I could wire these temporarily to get the beast home. It's stranded at a friends house about an hour away.
Since I had the carb out, I've been rebuilding it. The worst part- the screws are very tight. I've got it all apart and cleaned and the sun has set on my picnic table. Maybe the wife will let me bring it in on the dining room table.
Thanks for the feedback.
