Stefano,
Interesting cable running to the back of it - is it a add on choke control? Also does it look like it might have the OE heater valve on it? Does it say "Dole Valve" or something else? Still trying to determine if the one that was on my car was in fact the original.


Hope to meet you in Brookfield.

Thanks, this is the second 0160. I can't read the body tag. It is a small attached image instead of a thumb nail.

Thanks, data added to the first post in the thread.

I also see B85 on the trim, don't see many of those.

I know the question is old but the RK was a manufacturing assist for the plant. It is much easier for the worker to read a two letter code than a part number.

If anyone has additional data on original cars please post a photo of the carb stamping and the build date.
