Default Weeden 123 Restoration Help

I found a Weeden 123 that had been severly overheated. The boiler needs to be resoldered and the cup that holds the stack is missing. Since I have to take the top off the boiler, how is the cup mounted? On other Weedens the cup seems to have a mechanical fastner with solder.

The burner vent tube is also missing. Anyone know what the diameter should be?

Sorry no pictures, files were too big and got rejected..I'll work on that.

Pictures:
The Weeden was really overheated; even burned the handle on the whistle.
