John, Even if Tecumseh was still fully in business, that engine went obsolete long ago. Heavy flywheel,crank dimensions and electric start are easy enough to find. The problem is that new engines are OHV and fitting them into the space and making some kind of exhaust work is an issue. Now, you could mount most anything in there, but how hard do you want to work at it and do you want to keep it some what stock. Maybe you could repair the engine you have with parts or find another on the web. Might be the easiest way to go.
