Default Kingston carburetor ID

I have a Kingston brass carb that was given to me recently by a friend who thought it might fit one of my tractors, several of which have Kingstons.
This one is a looks very similar the the one on my 12-20 Wallis but is larger and it has no provision for a throttle butterfly.
Number stamped on body is A4964 L-1. Has a 1 3/4 inch inlet and 1 5/8 inch throat at manifold mounting. Fuel enters from bottom of float bowl and cork float is in great shape as is the whole carb. Anyone have any idea what this would fit?

No, it's an all brass, single bowl Kingston. I think it may be for a Wallis K or 20-30.

Phil,
I used to have a couple of those around and never knew exactly what used them but probably several tractors. There is talk about that here:
http://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=67465
For some reason, I had an idea the ones I had were off Case tractors? X-mounts? Any other tractors I have had with Kingston L series had the butterfly in the carb as well as in the throat piece.
G.

Lauson tractors used Kingston. The throttle is in the intake manifold on Lauson tractors.

G. The reason I think it might be from a K or 20-30 Wallis is that the one on my 12/20 Wallis, which also has no butterfly on the carb itself, is exactly the same and has exactly the same choke control lever. The only real difference is the one on the 12-20 is smaller.

I've restored a 12-20 and an 18-32 Case C/M and both had butterflies in the carb and in the governor controlled throttle body.

Hey Phil, if it has the same choke arm as the 12-20 then it is a wallis carb. The it would most likely be from a 20-30. others that used the same were a k, ok, and 15-27. But they did not come standard on all of those. they could just have been added later. As with everything else on the wallis it's all confusing!

If you want to sell the carb I really need one for our updated wallis OK.

Also the reason (imo) That wallis used the carbs with no butterfly in them was so they could manufature their own water injection metering setup that was in the vaporizer on the wallis tractors. Later on they must have had kingston make them a special carb with the same water injection setup right in the carb special for massey. they used that on the challengers and pacemakers.
