I am having a very difficult time finding an idle solenoid for my 1970 Dodge Challenger 440 Six Pack. Does anyone out there have any idea where I can find one to buy?

Or kill it in gear. I assume the OP has a 727, did the 4-speed use a solenoid?

Thank you for the reference. I contacted Tony's Parts and they replied that they no longer have the item in stock.

Thank you for the references. I checked Tony's Parts and Classic Industries. Tony's Parts web site showed the item as available. But when I contacted them, they replied that the item was no longer in stock. And Classic Industries web site has shown the item for quite a while, but they also say 'Arriving Soon'. I have checked the Classic Industries web site several times this year and it continues to say 'Arriving Soon'. Who knows when that might be, if at all!

Thank you for the Phil Fish reference. I don't know why I didn't think of him sooner as I purchased a complete Six Pack setup from him way back in 2006. I will fire off an email to him (I found his web site) to see if he has one.

Looks like they are getting big$ for them :surprise:
Always! That's why I cringe when I see guys post that they threw stuff off their car in the trash. Imagine if you had all the idle solenoids thrown away back in the day! Smog system air pumps for early Vettes were nearly all thrown away, now those parts are worth thousands!

At that price if you just need one for drive abilty then i would just rig one up from another car.

There has to be a Holley one thats close.

Also getting your distributor mechanical advance set up correctly really helps idle etc i have found over the years, correct idling and no dieseling.
