Looks like a 3 circuit to me, unless someone has already converted it.

It's a 9377 3-circuit. Just like the ones I have that I have converted one of so far. T-slots look decent, you will need to convert it and put in t-slot restrictors.

YUP, what Mark and Donee said! A little advice on this one. Buy some BLP blocks and talk to Scott or JMark on them before you order'em! They ask a s**t load of questions for each set they sell so you need the right answers before you call. ;-)

I started to buy a set of BLP blocks from Sonny's Racing Engines a few years back. The parts guy calls me back and says that BLP was asking him a s**t load of questions about the engine they were going to be used on cuz they setup the metering the way they want it before they ship'em out. I was wanting to set them up myself so I didn't bother calling them. Scott and JMark both have used BLP blocks so they can tell you what BLP will want to know. Me, I'd be telling THEM how I wanted them, but that's just me. ;-)

Actually I have Demon blocks on my 1250 because I had them, and Quick Fuel on the 1150 but have not tried it yet.

Sorry, I thought you were a BLP guy since you live in his neck of the woods! ;-)

This might sound a little crazy. Why not put a fresh set of gaskets in it and try to run as is. Just to see if it works. Might not need to do too much to it. See what you have before you invest time and money in it. Just an idea. Bob

So what your saying is that you can't just buy a set of BLP blocks to do your self.

Yes you can do them yourself.
But they come as a bare piece of aluminum.
You have to open the angle channels, install main well plugs, idle screws and gaskets, float whistles and brad, IFR (and tap if you want to relocate) as well as emulsion bleeds.

Just looking on BLP sight and they have a set of blocks for a 3circuit that does not use the main well for the idle circuit :-k ... :-k

didn't find that plug on there web sight but I guess it there somewhere...Should I just order the kit for the 2 circuit 850 with the 50cc acc pumps???

I tried getting a set of Tuner blocks. After 2 or 3 phone calls and long discussions I sent him a check. Two weeks later he told me would send them right out. Never did get the blocks nor even an explanation. Apparently he just didnt feel like doing them.
