Default UNKNOWN Brass Carburetor with Brass Updraft Tube

I recently acquired this at an estate sale. Does anyone know what make or possible application it had? It's a pretty unique setup...note the offset brass coupler in the tube. Thanks in advance.

It appears to be some variant of a Zenith model S. If the bowl cover is original, and readable, there should be some additional model identification there.

As to exact application, it is probably possible, but the value of the time involved to do the identification would greatly exceed the value of the carburetor. There were LOTS of applications for the Zenith type S.

The offset adapter was quite common 90 or so years ago.

Every carburetor company had a better idea, and made aftermarket carbs for a number of applications. As the physical shape of carburetors in that time period differed significantly, adapter were necessary to physically adapt a specific carburetor to a specific application.

The most common offset adapter was used to adapt virtually anything other than the original Marvel to 1926~1929 Buicks.

Looks like a hot water manifold inline, for cold weather.
