    Holley makes a new one, about $330. My throttle shaft is worn so I have also been looking for one.

    You might try GM. But beings they havent used TBI for quite some time it may be hard to find new units. I really doubt Rochester is even making them any more.
    turbocity.com Has good units they have both stock and high flow modified and all parts you will need. Its all quality GM stuff.
    I wouldn't use Holley Junk.Even on my Ford /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I picked up a rebuilt TBI for $75 from a local mechanic /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif He paid over $400 to find it wasnt the problem then he couldnt return it because that parts house went out of business.

    But after swapping all the parts over to my other TBI because the base casting was different... I would tell you to try buying a rebuild kit and do it yourself. Much simpler than rebuilding a Carb and I have managed to do those before.
