I have a 13 Touring, and it has two carbide generators (one extra). The first is pictured below. To me, it has an odd fitting that is made for two rubber hoses, as opposed to one, like I have seen on other cars. Does anyone know the origin of this unit?

The standard carbide generator for 1913-14 Fords was black and made of sheet metal with minor brass trim:
