Default rebuilding Continental R14 inline four

I am a commercial beekeeper with a mid 70s swinger lift with a continental R14 engine. I rely on this lift everyday and would like to know my options for total overhaul or repowering with a more modern engine. Still runs decent but old and leaky.

Other beekeeper have done complete swaps w kubotas but not sure i want to tackle that. I am not trying to keep this all original since the lift itself is a bit of a hybred. How difficult would it be to trak down rings bearings valves gaskets etc for the R14? thx for any help.

I think---REPEAT THINK--what you have is one of the little Renault engines Continental licensed and built...OHV?? with Ducellier or Marschal French ignition??
Can't find my Continental file but believe you'll find past threads here if you search Continental + Renault or Ducellier or Jacobseo Turfcat (believe some of the "R" engines were in Turfcats)...
Have you already tried local sources for parts ??? These were apparently not very widely used engines, and parts stores sometimes confuse them with the older heavier series of Cont'l R- truck engines...
Will advise further in can unearth Cont'l file...
