Default Brass Carburetor, what is it?

Found this nice old carburetor but it has no markings whatsoever on it. Any idea what it might be?

I believe this to be a Kingston, it looks LIKE but slightly different than the Kingston 5 ball for the model T Ford, I know there were 4 ball versions and yours is most likely one of these. Paul

I was wondering if it was a Kingston. Do you know if they were marked anywhere that I might be missing?
Thanks for your help.

They usually have kingston cast in around where the body flares out to flange to the float bowl, the ones that don't have the name cast in have a brass tag at about the same location, I'm leaning toward 4 ball for this one, looks to be complete and in good shape, the choke lever is the giveaway that its a Kingston, but a handfull of manufacturers made carbs for the model T, Schebler, Carter, Holley, and a few others.

I meant the throttle lever, the idle adjuster with the set screw to hold it from turning out or in, thats a Kingston thing, and the cast bowl is earlier production, nice If its not model T it is old tractor, you might try posting pictures in the steel wheel antique tractor section, those guys may be more help then me.

It looks too large to be Model 'T'. What is the throat size on it and the mounting hole spacing?
