Default Truck Cart Original or Other on Fairbanks Morse 15 HP

Just wondering what are the tell tale signs to learn if a 1928 Fairbanks Morse Steel Cart on a 15 HP is original or not.

Are there any style or significant clues as to an original cart truck?

I have a 1925 Canadian Fairbanks Morse book catalog but the photo of the cart is not detailed enough to see.

Here is a photo of the cart that came with my motor. Is it the original cart or an aftermarket cart?

Thanks for the feedback in advance.

Kind of looks like an original Geiser portable steam engine cart to me.

I was the runner up bidder on that engine. Don't know what the cart is from, but I am almost certain it was not Fairbanks.

Definitely a Geiser cart.
