To re-connect the OEM clamp for the breather hose to the throttle body, use a
small pair of "dykes". No - not that kind, I mean the wire cutter kind.
The dykes I use are for electronic work, and have a nice small cutting head
which works great on these clamps.
And on the idle speed change caused by the climate control, you might try
removing the valve control box. (I think you only have to remove the glove box)
There are lots of places for an air leak in there. The good news is that the box
is common to lots of the type 44 cars.
If it is not the box, maybe one of the vacuum motors is bad, or a hose fell off?
Is there any function that does not work?
