Mark, I think this is a Montgomery wards Sea King outboard carb. The early ones had brass carbs, later they were aluminum.

Mark, does it have a atmosphere valve in it like a lunkenheimer? looks like more of a stationary mixer than a marine outboard.

It would work very much like a Lunkenheimer. The vapor nozzle opening is flush in the actual seat. The air valve seats and seals against it when closed. Kinda thought maybe a city gas carb.
Maybe it was used on some companies marine engine converted to stationary engine for land lubbers, lol. Thank You, Mark

To me it looks like it belongs to a Thor. WRT a previous post, Thor also provided relabeled motors to M-W to be sold as Sea Kings.

Hope this helps.

Best,
