What should I expect to sell one for? I really have no idea how much to ask. It had the carb rebuilt back in 2008 and was only used for about 5 hours before being taken off. Would it need to be rebuilt since it has been sitting all this time to safely sell it as "working" or would it be better to let it go as is?

And yes, I know people will probably say sell it to me for $5... not gonna happen

Back when I had my S&S I purchased one through the dealership and paid somewhere in the $475.00 to $600.00 range for a new Holley Carb -- not sure of the exact price because I had some other work done also and that price included installation......

I would think $350.00 would be a fair asking price.....

I got rid of one a few years ago for $50 plus shipping. Of course it sold quickly, but my goal was to get rid of it and put it in the hands of someone willing to do a rebuild.

Sold my old eleven year 4010 rebuilt and used twice for $75 plus shipping. That carb was a nightmare and I was glad to be rid of it. I explained to the new purchaser before he bought it that it was professionally rebuilt and just as crappy as it was new before he rolled the dice on it.

I think you could get $150 for that carb without much work if it only has 5 hours since a rebuild. Plenty of people looking to swap out their 4010s and not wanting to pay $500 for a new one.

I would say no more than $150. You can buy a fresh reman carb with warranty for $219, buying your carb is a roll of the dice in comparison!

For $150, I might be interested. It might need a clean, but at 5 hours, I doubt it needs a rebuild.

Why did you take it off?

I bought my Maristar used and the guy who sold it to me threw in an extra carb. During the test drive it, it had some surging issues. When I got it back home, I took the extra and rebuilt it after a couple runs to try to eliminate the surge. After swapping carbs, it turns out it wasn't the problem. The fuel filter and water separator were the culprit. I swapped back to the original carb and stored the extra in case I ever needed it. When I sold the boat, I kept the carb.

And that's the rest of the story as PH would have said...

Depends on how long it sat on the shelf after it was run. The gaskets and o-rings will dry out over time.

Do you think it would need another rebuild after sitting for only 3 years?

Questionable. If it were me, I would run it and see how it does. If I had to rebuild it, it would be no big deal. It also depends on how much old gas sat in there and turned to crud.
