Carmichael numbers and Šimerka numbers
As you are aware Carmichael numbers pertain to the property of composite numbers
behaving like prime numbers with regard to Fermat's theorem. They are Devaraj numbers I.e. if N = p_1*p_2....p_r ( where p_i is prime) then (P_11)*(N1)/(p_21)......... (p_r1) is an integer. See A104016 and A104017. a) conjecture: the least value of k, the degree to which atleast two of a Devaraj number's prime factors are Inverses, is 2 (example 561 = 3*11*17 here 3 and 17 are inverses (mod 5^2). b) 5 and 11 are impossible cofactors of Devaraj numbers (including Carmichael numbers). (to be continued)

Well, 5 and 7469128023...77_{<181>} are goddamn inverses of degree 600.
131 and 1289338297...07_{<1808>} are inverses of degree 6002. 3 and (4025*2^66666+1)/3 are inverses of degree 66666. 7 and (3*2^320008+1)/7 are inverses of degree 320008. There are thousands of similar anecdotal cases. Do you have a point to make other than torture random semiprime numbers?

With a difference that Chernick proved his and you are "just saying". To what limit did you even test it?

which only works if q is 1 mod 3, because the first defeats 0 mod 3 and the others fail for 2 mod 3.
