Carb ID?

This carb is off of a 74 460 out of a Marquis. It has a cloth tag on it that is unreadable. I've only ever seen stamped metal tags. Did this one come from a rebuilder perhaps or did the factory...

How much weight do ya'll reckon is saved by using an aluminum intake, heads and rockers? I know on an FE it's considerable, enough to make a Galaxie sit higher in the front.

Timing gear spacer or slinger

What does this piece do? I slept some since I disassembled this motor, I believe this goes between the timing gear and the crank snout washer. Is it oil slinger or something? Thanks!
