I'm not familiar with Wagner. They're still in business. Perhaps parts won't be too hard to find. A lot of what fails on pneumatics are the soft parts. O rings, seals and the like. Unless you let water and rust get in the system. Then you're into hard parts which can be trouble in obsolete out of production systems.

Say there is a head gasket failure, with a planned top end overhaul with remanufactured cylinder heads, rebuilt water pump and a remanufactured turbo cartridge, inspect and clean the various coolers, along with the usual service kits. This is freshwater cooled via a heat exchanger.

How much more to go ahead and overhaul the bottom end mostly in place or if that is even possible on this engine (overhaul in place), one wonders.

According to Ski in post #17 the 353 is related to the 379. In the for what it's worth column I had a near full in frame overhaul done on a 379 with the engine in the boat. The only thing not touched were the main crank bearings. There wasn't enough overhead room to lift the block and get access. The 379 is a V8 so laying it on it's side was not reasonable. The 353 is a straight 6 so a good shop may be able to lay it over to overhaul it. That 379 went on to work steady for the next 30+ yrs and as far as I know is still running well.
