Can anyone identify what machine this Atco carb. was fitted to?

It came with a 'bulk buy' assortment of Amal, Del 'Orto etc. and looks to be solid brass, don't make them like this any more, more's the pity, they might last a lot longer if they did, my bike carbs. are generally mazak, a mixture of ally and zinc, junk in other words.

Looks like the post-Senspray carb used on Standards to me. Couldn't tell you when they changed though, maybe even then the Rudge boys were buying them for silly prices?

That's from an Atco Standard from the 1920s. It's a carb of their own design and shares some components with the Senspray I think.

It's the same as that fitted to my early 16" Standard but I don't believe it was fitted to the larger models.
