Dashpot fluid is used in some older carbs. Not in the carb per se, but in a little can or pot attached to the throttle plate shaft. I believe it was used to prevent throttle plate flutter. And he might be referring to fluid used to dampen the tach needle. Older tach and speedos used fluid as a means to prevent the needles from bouncing.
That's my story and I'm sticking (pun intended) to it!
I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking about making a few more.
