Default Continental Red Seal

A friend just bought a Continental Red Seal Power Unit at Arden. He got the thing running, but would like to find out a little about it. The numbers he found on it are as follows...
Serial Number-34332
cylinder block #-F400A61381
There is a metal tag sticking off of something that reads"281051"
Oh, it also has a rockford clutch on it.
It has RED SEAL cast into the exhaust manifold.

Questions...
What year/model is it?
Are parts available and from whom?
and finally (for now, anyway)..the oil line to the guage has been broken off at the guage. It must have been plugged, because when he started it, he looked for oil streaming out to locate the place where it would go, but nothing.

Thanks for any and all replies,
Kevin

That is kinda funny...after I posted the question, I went back to searching Google and I found P.A.Ross. Called them and they were amazing...spent about 10 minutes with me helping figure out what I had even though I told him up front I would not be buying anything today. Nice people that I'll definately be buying from in the near future!!

similar engines, 4 and 6 cylinders, were used for years in fork lifts and other industrial vehicles, a big user was Lincoln Electric who used the 4 cyl in welding machines. You can download a repair and parts manual off the internet, search for continental engines, parts are available though might be a tad expensive due to industrial use. hope this helps.
