    So A basic google search led me to this setup - Your "Black piece" is a co2 diffuser, they come in many sizes and varieties. Your one looks like a SAGA version.
    The other 2 x "Glass pieces" Are your Bubble counters. Very handy to identify how much co2 is being fed into the system. Set yours up similar to the pic and you should be good to go.

    As soon as you connect your regulator to the cylinder and "Turn" It on the gauges needle should move and settle. From the picture it looks like a dual stage so 1 should be a bottle pressure and the other the operating pressure. Just don't forget to put those check valves in line. Last thing you want is tank water being sucked back in and destroying your solenoid.
