Default 3W 100b2?

Is the 3W 100b2 the older version of the 3W 100s or the newer one? Or do I need a serial # from the engine to find that out?
Thanks

Which cylinder is forward?

What color is the carb manifold adaptor block?

Weighing will also be a tattle-tale. New ones weigh 5lbs.-9ozs...

Standing in front of the plane, staring at the nose cone... it appears that the right jug is forward

So if the right jug is forward looking at it from the front of the model or sitting in the cockpit the port/left side is forward and you have a red manifold adapter under the carb it's a standard or original version 3W-100, IMO...
