I'm hearing carbs can be dated past engine build date? Is that correct?
Back on page 1, William and JohnZ confirmed that engines were hot-tested using natural gas, and carbs were installed on the vehicle assembly line, so maybe it was possible for the carb date to be (slightly) later than the engine assembly date. However, surely that would only be possible if the engine was assembled more than a couple of weeks before the car? If so, a later carb than engine would probably be the exception rather than the norm, especially considering the supply chain lead time. Interesting to hear opinions on that one.
