Default tom thumb carb help required

hi guys

i am working on a tom thumb carb and it looks different than all the other tom thumb carbs i have seen.
the air intake appears to be on the side of the carb body not the bottom (see pictures)
can any one shed some light on this as i have to fix the carb.

the last picture shows a casting of the carb that i am used to seeing on these engines.

thanks for any and all help.

chuck

There is a bell shaped piece out the side where it is broke, A choke lever is on one side which opens and closes slots on the big end. Does yours have the brass connecting rod? mine was 1908, can't find a photo of it .Tom
