What I would do... If I wanted to do what George was doing...

I'd put a small belt-drive off the crank, to slow-turn an SBC oil pump, that would lift oil from say... about 6" off the bottom of a 5-gallon tank... and pump it up THROUGH a thread-on filter adapter, to a tank that's a few inches to a foot above his engine. From that tank, would be an overflow tube, that when the oil level got above overflow, it would drain down the tube, into the engine's crankcase, to some point BELOW the normal 'Full' line.
In the crankcase, I'd drill and tap a hole into which a fitting would thread, that would be just barely above the FULL line... from there, a tube to overflow, and go back down to the lower tank.

This would not only give him filtration, cooling, and capacity... IF the oil pump system failed, it would NOT drain the sump... it would just stop flowing the additional oil.
As for recapturing heat... it's a flathead... a guy could make a liquid-cooled head without much difficulty... and even boost the compression to give the NG more to work with... a thick piece of steel or aluminum, carefully milled with recesses to clear the valves, and a threaded hole for the plug... and then drill crossways holes for plumbing in some tubing to transport cooling water... That's essentially what the K-series 'marine' generator head was... but Iron.

Exhaust would be an easy place to capture waste heat.

I all ready use the motor heat to heat my shop at the end of a 7 hr run my 700 sq ft shop is tee shirt temp, the shop is attached to my dog boarding kennel and with the shop warm it somewhat helps to warm the dog farm.

Newly acquired free not stuck could get running. He has more I think Sunday I'll be getting more. These will be coming from an old machinest motor collector who's time had come to go to old age home.
