I see em on eBay now and then.craigslist too.
Complete engines that supposedly run, around here guys think they're made of gold.
Seems like I see more (used) Kohler 11-15hp vertical shaft engines listed around here, and for some reason more affordable. Should bolt right in place, only possible issue may be slight wiring mods needed and/or throttle linkage
But depending on which version you get that may be needed if you find another Briggs as well.
One 281707 may not hook up, exactly like another.
But if you get another like it, you can swap your linkages and such, over to the replacement.
