Here. Hopefully this is detailed enough to explain what you should be seeing.

Thanks, great explanation! On mine I can't duplicate that because my SolVac isn't near the screw even when fully warm, fast idle cam completely off.

Yep. Time for a swap then.
I've listed a Mopar and Borg Warner part number in the description.

Thanks. Funny both of mine are the same in terms of how far or not far they stick out with 12V applied.

For reference here's a copy and paste so I can look it up later

Defective Sol-Vac units (open coil or bad diaphragm) should be replaced. Replacement part cross-references I know of are:
Mopar: 83500342
Federal Mogul/Borg Warner: 213-245

Update: I have not been able to drive my car recently due to a tire issue and doing some tinkering on it.... but I have some exciting news!

I contacted the seller on eBay with the SoleVac unit for sale in the USA and they after a week or so enabled shipping to Canada. So I was finally able to buy it!! Woohoo, it was kinda pricey at $103 Metric Dollars after all is said and done but that will be a new NOS part so yay. The smarter thing to do would be to put that money toward EFI swap but hey I'm trying to keep things original, I'm a little weird like that.

Next up I really need tires, and I need to drop the gas tank and replace the sending unit with one that is accurate. Install those mudflaps I mentioned in the other thread and then I can get back to tweaking the choke! I haven't actually got much done on the car in the last little bit but hopefully in the next 2 weeks I should be able to make some progress again.
