Carburetor plea

I have an Airline battery gas engine charger made by Montgomery Ward, Model 14-CM 6616, serial no. E-5994, 6-volt, 30-40 amps, 240 watts.

The carburetor was busted in three parts (die-cast) as shown in the photo, and fits onto the copper pipe and intake flange. Can anyone help with a replacement? Also, the capacitor is wrong for this unit and I would like to purchase the correct one. The capacitor bracket is also missing; otherwise, it appears to be in tact. One man's junk, another man's treasure.
