1KW - 0.746 HP , so 2.25 KW = 1.6785 HP as far as power output. For such a load, considering power losses from drive type, (direct drive) , figure you want a load at maximum of 85% of engine HP it'll need a minimum 2 HP to run the genny , so I would expect a H35 or H40 (more likely a H40 or HS40 model) - spec number can probably be figured out considering its a homelite.
HOWEVER the block , carb, etc does not match up in color, so it's probably been "bastardized" or cobbled together - Homelite WAS that blue color long ago so it may be a very old tecumseh built homelite engine on a newer genny head - the numbers are probably long gone - the blower housing appears to be a replacement , and very likely the model and spec was never transferred (or the labels fell off) However since a great deal of the engine parts will be almost all the same (except for carb and crank) you would probably be fine looking up parts for an H40 (or you can pop the head off, measure bore and stroke to get displacement, and figure out what models had that displacement.)
