Holly NH. The data plate would have been on the engine side top of casting that covers the bowl.

And Robert,when your carburetor begins to leak uncontrollably,it will be due to a little sliver of teflon tape causing the needle valve not to close.Forewarned is forearmed.

Robert, holly is the prickly stuff that goes on Christmas puddings. What you have is a Holley NH carburetor. From the photo, I think it is a new reproduction. The throttle, choke and mixture control pieces look way too sharp to be old time originals.

It is a damn poor mind indeed which can't think of at least two ways to spell any word. Andrew Jackson
