Default 4 HP Eclipse Engine parts/help

Good Evening,
This week i plan to go and look at a Eclipse engine that is disassembled. From what i am told, the governor weights are missing, but not sure how much beyond that until i get to lay my eyes on it.

I am looking to see if anyone has any spare parts around for these, that might have some weights? From what i am told, the name plate is gone, so i am not sure on the serial # of the engine.

Any help would be appreciated. I have been watching videos and looking at pictures to get an idea of how it will go together in the event that i do buy it. If anyone has some diagrams or assembly sheets it might be helpful for the reassembly. It might be my first hit and miss, so i am pretty excited.

Thank you for your help, i will keep you posted if i end up bringing the old girl home.
