You're right.  The shop manual says to replace the mixture needles at 48K miles, and also replace the main jets every 96K miles.  This seems to be bit pessimistic for recently manufactured needles but was quite optimistic back in the 1970s and '80s.

When you compare this to the 6K miles the shop manual calls out for virtually all maintenance and inspection services, it seems apparent that the factory actually thought that Strombergs were remarkably reliable.
