The thing, or the thingy? :D

That unit was sent to me as "Broken, if you can fix it you can keep it."
It was different than the one I installed in Billy's Tito Neri also.
It has three different jumpers, rather than three pins and jumper setting one or jumper setting two.

And I was a bit confused trying to get a DC voltage reading off of the power leads to the mist unit.
Then it occured to me, try the AC settings... Bingo... the unit cycles between 1 and 54 volts AC.
The fan pulses for "puff", and runs constant for desiel.  However, this one seems to puff at Idle, and
I can't get it to change.  ???

New fan was 11.50 plus shipping AND stock fee... 15 total... :(

As fact as I know Jim produced two versions of his "Old Smokey", the Mark 1 and the Mark2.

The Mark 1 came in two versions, one with a diesel control board that gave a boost on start up, and one with a steam control board that didn't.

The Mark 2 combined the two boards and incorporated a mode switch for changing over between the two and also incorporated a "show" mode which allowed the unit to operate without input from the motor, for instance when on display at shows.  I think the plug arrangement changed as well but without mine in front of me I can't remember the differences.

Somone, your side of the pond, just posted that they have leads to a 12vdc mist generator.
Hopefully he pops up with more info. I messaged for more info.
