Kingston 5 ball carb. for Model T Ford

I have a Kingston 5 ball carburetor that appears to fit an early Model T Ford. I've seen two types. One the mounting flange is cast with the carb. The other is threaded on. The flange is a match with the intake flange. Can someone tell me if the threaded flange is still correct for the early fords? Brassman

The threaded flange that adapts a 1 inch pipe thread Kingston to a T is not original. It works though. There is one on eBay right now, I think it is $700 buy it now. About 1/3 the price of a correct 5 ball for a Model T.
