I have a 5-speed manual 5th Gen (87) with a 350.

When the A/C is on and I depress the clutch, the engine stalls unless it is already very close to idle speed. If already stopped, the A/C does not stall the engine.

What more information do you need to help me diagnose this issue?

Check the fast idle soleniod on the front throttle side of the carb to see if it is working properly,it raises the idle by physically pushing back on the throttle.Check a motor manual on how to test it.

Aftermarket Accel DFI...

The idle since I got the car in December has been ~ 1000 RPM, cold or hot. After a while of idling it will seek or surge between 875-1000 RPM, but it isn't doing that when the A/C stalls out the engine.
