1. Can you ID this carb?

    I pulled this weber carb off of my 89 yj 4.2L, it ran great but I've installed the howell tbi, so carb goes to ebay. BUT, I can't figure out what it is, I THINK it might be a 38 DGES but I'm not sure..

    It has a few markings:

    on the front:
    a number 1 with a circle around it and Made in Spain

    on the passenger side:
    ???A3 (not sure what the ? letters are)
    M3442

    On the rear:
    number 27 in a circle

    On top:
    both of the butterfly valves say 11 (or =) on them

    On the bottom:
    a date code wheel (02)
    11078
    both of the butterfly valves say 78o (degrees)

    Here are some choice images (click them for full size):

    Many thanks for any help. I'll be happy to answer any other questions.

    Does anybody have any idea how I can ID this?

    Realizing this is an old thread still I wanted to confirm it's ID. It is as you suspected a 38DGES.
    All genuine Webers have the Series and size stamped into the base flange, this one can be found on the end opposite of that with the choke assembly.
