Looks like it could be some kind of QEV.

It looks like a QEV with some sort of homemade pushbutton valve for a pilot.

It would help a lot to know who/where you got that picture from.

it's just a QEV.... as you can see the valve is machined from a block of aluminium... a lot of different valves are built in this way
