My first rebuild with the 9377 was around $420 in 2010 or so.

I just had them rebuild my 8082 dominator for my Trans Am back in November and it was about $550. But keep in mind I had them add all the bells and whistles like venom billet metering blocks and their boosters.

Iím having some kind of fast idle type issue with the newest carburetor. Like if I get on the throttle hard it doesnít come back down to idle after I lift. It hangs at like 2000 rpm or so for up to a minute. The linkage doesnít appear to be binding anywhere. Iím somewhat stumped to be honest. My best guess would be itís an issue with the 4.5Ē power valve in the primaries but thatís just a guess.

I would turn the carb over and check the linkage between the Primary Blades and the secondary blades, hidden in the center base of the carb.

Also the blade alignment in the bores.
The idle should never hang at 2000 for a minute (which is a lifetime) vs what should happen.

I had not even considered that. Thanks Tom! I’ll take a look tomorrow. My Northwind finally arrived (port matched and mild plenum work) and I want to switch out the Victor for it. I’m hoping to finally get an air cleaner on it.

Maybe I exaggerated about the minute but it’s definitely 20-30 seconds. Feels like an eternity
