Here's an update, fellas.
I soaked what I thought were the right areas with PB blaster for a short period of time and tried to test it again. I'll probably continue to muck around with this old part to see if I can get it to work, but I needed a working car, so I went ahead and bought a new part.
After hooking it up to the battery, the valve flies open and close when you touch the leads to RSC, B, and RSO. Now that I understand what it's supposed to look like, I can see that the old part was stuck pretty good.
Anyways, everything came back together pretty quickly and the car cranks up and idles beautifully now. Before I would be happy if it idled at start right at 1000 rpm, but now it shoots up and idles near 2000 rpm. I need to read the manual and figure out if this is right, seems slightly high, but it's better than below 300 rpm and dying so I'll take it for now.
Thanks all for the advice and support. Any other thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
