throttle solenoid question

im trying to figure out some wiring. My fuse box has a fuse for the "throttle solenoid". I am looking over several wiring diagrams, but im confused about some of the naming. is the throttle soenoid and the Idle stop solenoid the same part? I have two wires (ones solid gray, the other is either white/black or black/white)going to a connector through my firewall on the passenger side that connects to another "two pin connector but the connector it connects to has a single wire coming out of it. this wire is just loose. Im about 90 percent sure this goes to the "anti-dieseling" solendoid on the driverside of my carb (2150 2bbl), but I would like some feed back. The solenoid on my carb has a broken wire that also is not connected.

I have seen where Ford will call the same part by different names in their shop manuals, parts catalogs and various other publications.
Pretty sure the "throttle solenoid", the "idle stop solenoid" and the "anti-dieseling solenoid" are the same, just different names.

My '78 S-cab has a two wire connector with two wires coming from it. One goes to the electric choke and the second goes to the solenoid in question.

If it was a bit warmer and not raining cats, dogs and an occasional frog I would check the wiring colors. But that will have to wait for another day.
