Default Delco 1278

Well I finally got it home and doing a little bit of research I have myself adelco 1278 I was wondering if anybody knew some more about this particular power plant I know it's got the fuel pump in it and it can be run off a governor for just the belt work but I'm also really looking for maybe some valve springs and keepers the one looks like it's broke it's not stuck but it doesn't move a whole lot so any help would be great and manual would be also great to thank you for your help guys have a very merry Delco Christmas
