I have a Kingston Carburetor that appears to be a 26/27 version (large bowl nut and swivel spray needle). However, it has no name plate and the body was never drilled for name plate rivers. The name "Kingston" cast into one side and "Made in USA" cast on the other. Any comments?
Should say name plate "rivets". Any comment re this Carburetor?
Sounds like you have a Kingston L, they were the earlier version in the "L" series. The "L" typically is made of iron, has no ID plate and a larger bowl and bowl nut.
Kingston "L"'s have a very deep mixture seat much more than the L-2 or L-4...the square nut on the mixture needle swivel looks like a Holley and was probably added later. Although I've seen one other Kingston L and it also had a swivel on it like that on too.
I think this is a replacement carburetor sold aftermarket, after T production ceased.
They also had a little 'bar' that looked just like the two hole needle valve top for the pronged adjusting rod.These had tabs that stuck out on the sides.The tabs fit in the ujoint holes.So they would fit either style choke/mixture rod.
Thanks for the inputs. What I have doesn't look like photos of "L" versions I have found. I have found a number of photos of carbs that are the same as mine that all have the 26/27 spray needle. Appears I have a late L4.
Well this should help some, just ignore the mixing needle.
