Question Possible International Harvester (?) early flywheel ID assistance

A neighbor of mine is thinking about buying this for his yard. It appears to be the sump and flywheels from an early gas stationary engine, and a large one at that. The closest I have been able to find is an International Harvester style engine, based on the style of the flywheel spokes which have bolt holes for accessory wheels etc.

This particular one is partially buried thanks to the passage of time, however I suspect that there is quite a bit more hardware under the dirt based on how deeply the flywheels are already buried.

Can anyone help identify the model and manufacturer of this half engine - note the bulge around the flywheel sump cover?

Thanks in advance

Many thanks David
The neighbor is thinking of using it for yard art however are the parts worth saving for someone with an engine they are trying to restore? Sadly it looks like the top end of the engine is long gone.
Also do you have any idea how much the bottom half and flywheels weigh as he is trying to figure out what he will need to use to dig it out/rescue it.
Thanks in advance

I looks like it has a clutch pulley that is worth saving as well. I could use one.

Sell the clutch pulley to pay for the unit. It being gone will not detract from the yard art. The flwheels and crankcase are yard art. Looks to weigh about 2,000 pounds give or take. Much more info on the vintage diesel fourm.
