Default 8 hp araco engine information

We looked at an 8 hp araco engine this weekend. I can find little information. Might anyone have or know where to find information on this engine?

verticle with twin flywheels. head has a deep set spark plug, looks original or a very good modification. water cooled. ball weight governor controlling a vapor fuel valve. has "hit and miss" valve lock out.

any ideas? value?

Thank you for any info
