KHK Cylinder Date Code

Hi All, just curious about a KHK cylinder date code I just picked up. As seen in the picture "D 20-0". Is this just a replacement K cylinder Harley made for the dealers in April of 1960? What does the "S" stamped by the date indicate? Thanks

That is the most likely scenario Jerry, and the "S" is likely just an inspectors stamp.

Jerry, Sweet looking cylinders. Can't offer any comment on the date code but I would be very interested in seeing a picture of the polished intake and exhaust ports.
