9 hp craftsman snow blower - needs new engine

I have a 9 hp 29 inch craftsman snow blower - model # 536-887995
The engine has seized. Craftsman no longer makes this engine.
What replacement can I use?

Please look for model number on engine and then it will make it easier for you/us to make a determination on motor replacement. Please post engine model number.

It may be worthwhile to open the engine up to see exactly what is wrong with the engine. I don't know that your level of expertise is, or how much time you might have to expend on it, but you have not much to loose, because if indeed it is repairable, it will last longer than most replacement small engines made today. There are plenty of sites with small engine parts, even Tecumseh parts.
