[DML] Re: high idle

Wiring on the solenoid is not critical. However the hoses must be as 
shown on the diagram in the manual or on the engine cover. If the 
hoses are reversed the vacuum advance will hang a bit and you won't 
pass a strict emission test. But that's not your problem at the 

Based on your description I'd guess that the idle microswitch is not 
engaging or is broken. OR the vacuum solenoid is passing vacuum all 
the time. In that case you never cut off vacuum advance to the 
distributor, and it will cause high idle (assuming nothing has been 
adjusted in an attempt to fix it) once the engine warms enough to 
switch vacuum from the regulator to the distributor.
