    And I forgot, Folks,

    M841L & R had the narrow "M" as well.

    I have also logged a pic of one wide M741-1 "M", with other font faults.
    The real question then becomes: Why would anyone ever fake an M741!

    Pity any judge.

    Have you guys ever seen a Linkert either 352 or 344 with silver body paint?

    Hi,
    I have seen several M344s and M352s in silver body paint, but in all instances, it appears as if the silver was a paint applied in recent times. Factory photos are typically inconclusive when it comes to carburetor color. The most common color that appears to be original, is black. Many carburetors are currently paint-less, and they appear to be brown; the color of oxidized brass.

    thanks! I meant to add the 350 model, but I'll assume the answer is the same..........black for that model as well?

    Hi,
    Yes, I would say that the M350 colors seen are very similar to the M344 and M352. The M350 and M352 carburetors are relatively rare compared with the M344. The M350 and M352 were made in the hundreds, whereas the M344 was made in the thousands - tens of thousands.
