I have a couple of extra bodies and metering blocks I got with a car long ago... what date are you looking for?

I think anywhere from April to end of May would probably work. Ed says even the 934 would be ok. So 94X, 95X might be fine but I don't know if too close for V0604DZ. I'm hearing carbs can be dated past engine build date? Is that correct? I do have a 4519 block that came with the car when I bought it.

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.

I have a '941' and an '822' body, both with 4519 and 5583 metering blocks and associated parts; I might be short a couple of bowls for one of them?  The 941 is 'sorta promised' to a camaro buddy.. although we haven't closed the deal after 2-3 yrs.. :)
