The 421 flange number was used by the following carburetors:

483-S; 515-S; 569-S and the 574-S.

If it has a straight accelerator arm then it is a 569S. The others have the accelerator arm with the two 90 deg. bends. The 569S is a good option for your '33 but is easy to tell from the original Carter W-1 in case you ever decide to have it judged.
