Idle too fast related to Climate Control 1981 380 slc

I'd like some help with ideas to fix my idle speed on my 1981 380 slc. I believe it is directly related to Climate Control unit, servo and/or the valve that is part of the idle control. Having by-passed the servo entirely on my /79 300sd to simply get the heat On or Off I am interested in both fixing the idle issue or jerry-rigging it to run slower without dealing with the bigger issue of the Climate Control $700 box/servo. I am also interested in the best "Just Fix It" approach and where I can order those parts. My capable mechanic in Ojai, David Jury who knows his Mercedez says his immediate parts avenues are not finding what i need. Thanks, Doug Day, in Maine (380 slc in Ojai, CA) is offline
