Fixed speed, industrial flywheel ( wrong end for marine use).  This isn't an easy boat engine conversion and I suspect it is hand start only - most of the airfield gen sets were,  and the starting handle is shown below the rad. So you will need to find an electric start flywheel ( or have a  ring-gear fitted) or  a raised hand start set.  Either will cost more than the engine, probably.  Not a dry sump version it appears though, so no need for external oil tanks and pipery.

If the alternator were OK a single phase to 3-phase VFD might make an interesting diesel-electric drive project though.

I've bought and sold on quite a few of these, most of them from remote farms. They do occasionally turn up with electric start, one out a pumping station even had a complicated electric system of decompression for automatic start. Unfortunately my regular customer was a certain Mr. Hudson, he loved them turned down marine JP's in favour of gensets. Despite the grotty exterior they were usually in remarkably good condition and always started easily after a bit of priming.
