I have had this Holley for some time and thought it was a Holley 4500, because it looked like one pictured in a Model T replacement parts book. After cruising the forums I found that a 4500 has a single air valve. This carburetor has five balls. Is it considered a Holley Five Ball, or a Holley 1910? I haven't been able to find clear picture to positively ID. Any help would be appreciated..
I believe that is a 1910 Holley 5 ball.

1910 Holley, it's a pretty rare carb. Your is the improved version with the brass float bowl. Earlier versions had a pot metal float bowl.
Ed & Kim,
Thanks for the quick response. I wasn't sure if a 1910 and Five ball were the same carburetor. Found mentions of both., but no pictures, and not much information. You guys cleared it up for me.
Jim, generally when someone refers to a carb as a 5 ball, they are referring to a 1909-11 Kingston. Generally your carb is referred to as a 1910 Holley. Yours looks like a nice one!
That is what I thought, but I did find a post where someone referred to a Holley 5 ball. I am thinking about selling it and want to make sure it is properly represented. It is in really good shape and will take some more pictures with the bowl removed when I get a chance.
