The information I have is that Best used primarily Ensign type Gte carbs, which your carb appears to be. However, other companies also used the Ensign Gte, so this is not positive proof.

As to Holt, my information shows Holt used mostly Kingston carbs.

Thats great to know! I have had this carb sitting on a shelf for a while in the shop saw a video with a best crawler and it had what looked to be this carb on it . That made me wonder if this is a stock carb for one of those two crawlers but it seems this carb is used on more then just them.
