I just picked up this carburetor to sell but in all the years I have seen it I didn't notice that it was backwards. It would be an easy thing to change it to T but it might be worth more as it's setup. Unless they/it are really corroded the one ball I looked at looks to cork. It is T sized, my thumb makes it look smaller then it is, like the mirrors on the passenger side!

Since the mixture knob is. not set up for inside the car adjustment it is likely for a stationary engine or marine power plant. What size is the throttle blade?
It's a hair under 1 inch and the mounting hole spacing matches up to T.
I think it was on some '14 Model T's.
The one I have is like that.
They were used, as were many Kingston, Holley and other makers designs, on a variety of cars, tractors and stationary engines. Maxwell used them on some of the pre-Flanders cars although they mostly used Johnson.
Kingston 4 and 5 ball carbs came in every possible size and configuration from 1/2 pipe flange size to 2 inch pipe flange or larger. I am doing one right now that is tiny and cute, looks like a puppy along side a Model T Kingston. It is for an Evinrude boat engine.
Here is a little bigger one.
Did a little more close checking, the throttle hole and center to center on mounting bolts are just a little smaller then Ford. Just enough to be no go.
Stan, you are a whiz with your vast carburetor knowledge. Wish we had someone like you down under in New Zealand.
Thanks! Maybe I'll move to NZ for the part of the year it is cold and miserable here and then you'll have somebody.
