The best place I know to get an answer to this question is:
If you want to post it out there I will.

They are fine old engines that rarely die unless severly maltreated.
Assuning you buy it a a scrap price, even if the engine and gen head are total
writeoffs (unlikely) you could probably part out what is left and make money on

These people would know:
Your engine is probably an HA3 model. It's air cooled. The water cooled
ones are quieter and live longer. The HA3 was also used in the long
boats on English canals.
Parts are still available and what isn't being made in England anymore
is available from India. They are relatively easy to work on, as the
barrels and heads are mounted individually
They make cylinders and pistons...etc..etc..
Does the engine look like this one?
Electric starts are also available, but the compression release makes
hand starting not too bad. Except in winter.

It does look similar, but this one has an alternator and a starter. It says 18
HP on it, half of what the HA3 seems to be described as.
