Does the manifold say "Regenerator" on it? If so it is made by Kingston, this may help

This is just the carburetor part with the manifold and vaporizer anvil.

The air intake looks like this,

Note that the carburetor is really part of the whole vaporizer assembly, not a bolt up like the Holley's Vape. You probably only have the upper half, but there is far more to this carburetor than just bowl and float. You either have all of it, or you've got a rather intricately cast paper weight or door stop...get a hold of James Mahaffey, he may know more about where to get the rest of it, or keep scrounging through swap meets for the parts, if you found that much the rest of one is bound to turn up somewhere too...maybe Hershey.

Just thought of something, if you're thinking of installing this carb on your 1914 it wont work. The Regenerator was made exclusively for the 26-27 cowl tank cars. The one you need is the Gasifier with the extension for the under the seat tanks. If you'll notice if you installed this Regenerator, the bowl of the carburetor would be sitting about level with your tank (if you had one).

The carburetor has to sit lower than the tank, which is why the Gasifier is the one you want.
