Central heating unit - Airequip/Airchief

I have a couple of questions for anyone who may be able to answer them, please. :confused:

Our home has an Airequip/Airchief central heating unit in it, with three ducts (to hall, dining and lounge). The vents have been carpeted over for, I'd say, ever (old fawn/brown almost floral woolen carpet - ie dated). The house is a late 60s model. Although having said that, there is evidence of some ash fallout on the roof, so perhaps the unit has been used.

There is also, of course, an associated tank.

I don't really have any idea of what condition the unit is in, and don't really know who the 'right' person would be to ask. I don't know what would be involved in getting it going, nor if it would be efficient or even worth it.

Question 1 : Do you think this unit is sellable?
Question 2 : What might be a reasonable price to ask for it?
(Associated questions - do we sell the tank and ducting with it, or as extras?)

An aside - a near neighbour has the same unit. We are more than willing to give it to him for parts, if he employs someone responsible to remove it. Is that fair, do you think? Or perhaps {gasp} too generous even?

I don't really have any clues about this ... so thought I would ask.

TIA [:I]

Bump.

I'll add a third question, too - has anyone ever used one of these units and can comment on their effectiveness or otherwise for heating?

TIA (again).

If it is really old, that may be volcanic ash on the roof.

What does this thing run on, oil or wood or whale peat?

Haha!

Runs on diesel (yes, the tank is still there).
