Looks a little like the modern "Premium" font here, down the page.

Good work, the 0, 5, and 3 are quite close. The 4 is a miss. Now where is that 4?...

Another "close but no cigar" modern font called Typewriter, at the bottom of this page.  Top of the 1 and 7 are off, and once again the 4.

On this site at the top left you can enter 4053 and search to see just those characters in many typewriter style fonts

I think the Traveling_Typewriter font is really close except the 3.

There may be a BOLD version of that font, that's even closer.  Or you can probably mimic with a firm stamping hand.

The 7 in Traveling Typewriter has an extension from the top horizontal line down.  It may be the best you find.  The extension could always be manually clipped off the stamp easy enough.

Some of the carb photos have different "4"s", some with open tops and some with closed.

Just got the rubber stamps back, below is a test impression. I had them made as individual numbers so I could adjust the spacing. I can adjust the thickness (bold) by pressure. I think the 5/16" Travelling Typewriter font is very close, I may use a different "0". I also had other letter and number stamps made to duplicate other markings that appear in other fonts on the carb. Once I get the carb stamped I'll post photos.
