Could anyone identify this Kingston carburetor? I was thinking it might be a Model L, but I really don't know. Any idea when it dates from? Would it be appropriate on a 1913 car?

Thanks. Here is the 1913/14 Metz parts catalog illustration of the engine. The carburetor is identified as a "Holley". Any guess as to the model?

Carb in your Metz engine illustration is a Holley H-1, out of sight is a side projection that houses the float mechanism. This model carb was used on Model T Fords 1911 and 1912. At some point it was licensed to Waltham Watch for manufacture and use on the Metz. Waltam Watch added a name tag on top held on by the 3 screws as previously mentioned. The Holley version is made with brass body while the Metz version has iron or aluminum body. Probably the best place to find one is advertise on Model T Ford Club(s) websites as the T guys picked them up in the past thinking they were for their Ford.

Thanks for the help! Yes, the Metz carb flange is identical to Ford's. Metz engaged an ex Ford employee to design the Metz motor.
