Hi All,

I need to find a new or used "fast idle valve" for my 1976 Fleetwood Brougham 500cid EFI engine. The original part has the following written on it: BENDIX 1181835 however I am unable to find this part coz it is probably discontinued. At online partssuplliers the subtitution part is a STANDARD ES33 SOLENOID, however that part is totally different than the original, it doesn't fit into the throttle body, it is a mistake.
Can anybody help me where to look?
Here are 2 pictures from the shop manual.

Thanks in advance!

Keep an eye on ebay. These parts show up there from time to time. Some of the late 70's Seville 350 EFI solenoids will work.

Does the valve work, or is it broken? The fast idle valve on my '76 EFI Fleetwood idled too high, and I used some shims to bring the RPM's down. It worked since that's a very hard part to find! Heck, ALL the EFI parts for those cars are scarce!

Thanks guys, I know it is a little late now (I had no access to the forum for a long-long time) but everything is solved now. I bought already 3 valves (better than none :yup:) on Ebay, everything is fine now!
