Its most likely an S8D model
Looks like your breaker points are missing as well.
If you need parts let me know , should be able to help you on most of the stuff missing.

Welcome to the GTT forums!
Before you go too far spending money on an engine which you have no history on, or may have serious problems, I'd suggest just installing the ignition points & condenser, and re-installing that carburetor.
Once that is done, you can determine if you have spark for ignition, and fuel getting into the engine. .....Use the starter pulley on the front of the engine with a starter rope.
Although it is not advisable to run the engine without the shroud or air cleaner, you may do that briefly to prove the engine is good, before spending money on a shroud, air cleaner, starter/generator, and any other components needed.

Are you looking for used or new parts, all parts are available new but of course your looking at a couple hundred to get the engine complete again, I would suggest starting with basics and just try and get the engine running with some points to make sure your internals are sound

Bruces post, he beat me to it
You will be ok running the engine for a minute or two without your shroud just to make sure nothing is wrong internally.
Can you provide better pictures of the Points box? It appears your lower grounding bolt is missing as well and possibly the points push pin??
