Replacement engine source

I have an older Simplicity Sno-Away 2 stage blower with blown engine. I would like to replace the engine, but not sure of a good source.
The engine is a 7 hp B&S Model: 190402, Type: 096-02, Code: 7205101
It has a 1" x 2 7/8"shaft
The mounting bolt pattern is approx 3.5 in x 7.5 in

Not having a lot of luck with my search so far, so if anyone knows a good source that is cheap enough to make the repair worth while, it would be greatly appreciated.

Replacement snow engines were in very short supply this past winter with Tecumseh going down and severe weather across much of North America. How much have you budgeted for a replacement? That machine is over 35 years old and a lot of parts are likely obsolete. Is it really worth spending money on?

B&S no longer makes a 7hp snowblower engine. It is now 7.75hp. This engine runs $250-$300 plus shipping. If you wait until fall, with this economy, you most likely will be able to get a new snowblower for $400- $500. I just picked up a 16.5/42" cut Poulan lawn tractor on a 2-day sale for $799. Reg price is $999. You might be able to get a $600 snowblower for $450. That's only $150 more than the engine. Give it some thought.
