Question HELP installing Hampton Bay Carousel ceil. fan

My wife picked up a used ceiling fan at a yard sale. Its the one with the multi-color primary color lamps and blades designed for kids. It is Hampton Bay fan number 897F called Carousel.

I have put up a few Hampton Bay fans before, but they were the newer style with the quick connect feature that allows the fan to hang while you wire it.

This one appears to be an older style and probably has mounting parts missing. At its top is a mounting cover with a heavy duty mount that sticks out above the cover and appears to be a receiver for a ball. There are no tubes or extension bars.

I've seen fans with balls on top that hang on mounts, but this one seems upside down to me. It has the mount on top and appears to need a ball hanging from the ceiling. Does this make sense? Can the required hardware be purchased easily? Anybody have a copy of a manual with this type of installation? Too bad Hampton Bay doesn't have manuals on PDF.

Any help would be most appreciated-

I am having trouble getting a visual on what you have and do not have.

Do you have a way to take pics and post them somewhere?

Post JWhite...I need your email address

I've got 4 photos of my fan posted at shutterfly.com, but they need your email address to share them with you.

If you don't want to post it here, you can send me an email.

Thanks,
Dave
