Location of triangular alum tag on '63 QJet 4GC

Recommended Posts

Update: I had my QJet 4GC rebuilt by a recommended shop in San Diego (thanks for the referral, CarbKing Jon) and it was confirmed that this is indeed a correct carb for '63, #7023143 as stated on the triangular aluminum tag, which I'm glad to know that it was not just migrated to a later carb.

My Q is: What part of the top of the carb was the ID tag attached to at the factory, and at what position so it didn't get crushed by the massive red crinkle air cleaner? The tag has seen better days during the last 56 years, so I'd like to give it some respect after gently straightening it out in a padded vise. Looks like four choices: LF, LR, RF, or RR, under the uppermost slot screws on the carb housing -- but I may be wrong.

Any help appreciated before I stand back and fire it up. I was told that the previous rebuilder used the wrong gasket kit and seriously misadjusted the floats.

Hopefully things are in spec enough so I can get to the shop for a final tuning.
