W108 help me bypass emisions relays

I have queried this forum several times with no response. I am becoming desperate in my attempt to get my 1771 280 S running. I have lost my job and will need to use her as my daily driver.
Problem: will not idle below 1100 RPM
• Both zenith carbs have been professionally rebuilt
• Ignition upgraded to Hot Point 50K
• Fuel system flushed
• I have one idle solenoid that does not work but it has already had the end clipped off anyhow.

I do not know how the emission switches should be hooked up and I want to return the car to euro status. The instructions I read says to attach the rear carb to the dashpot but I do not have dash pots on my carbs.
