Lister Petrol - need help to Identify Old Shearing Plant

Hi all, my parents are looking to identify this old Lister engine so they can sell it, it was used to power a Wolseley sheep shearing machine. I remember it being used for a couple of years when I was very young, around 1985/6. A new shearing shed was built and this was just left, the intake has always been covered with rag. I rocked the flywheel a bit and it rotates freely so it would probably start with a little bit of work.

Hope someone can help :)

Its a Model A. I have one in my basement on a 32 volt light plant. Been there since 1928, I can't get it out!

It is not a A, it is much too early for that. the plate says N so it would be a 6 hp and it would date about 1913/14.
Chester would have supplied good information in his email.
