    There is a date code on every Aisan carb. It is stamped in small letters on the top front of the carb. The format is Y M DD. Y is the last digit of the year (4=1964,1974,1984...), M is a letter of the alphabet corresponding sequentially to the month (A=jan, B=feb,...), and DD is the numeric day of the month.
