Default Unknown Carburetor

Hello;
Here is a carburetor that I was saved from a barn about 15 years ago. I was going through some stuff today when this carburetor found me this time. ( has this ever happened?) I am
wondering what type of engine that this came from..?

Looks like a throttler Hercules/Economy to me. Its had some tinkering done on it. The lid isn't correct but that's not a big problem. Pretty hard to find carb.

That looks like what it is Turbo. I didn't see the fuel pump "hole" on it and had ruled out FM. Then when I go back and look at the photo I see where it looks like large round head machine screw has been placed in the hole. Look at the photo I pulled from the web.

Thanks for all the reply`s. I think you all nailed it as a Fairbanks.
I was wondering what size and model that this would fit. I like
applying tags on all my parts, so when I kick the bucket, the wife
can instantly sell all my "Junk"...
