482 needs some attention

I need some advice. Got a real slick 482 but the Briggs has unfortunately given it up. A neighbor of mine that works on mowers on the side thinks the motor has basically imploded and needs replaced. What's a good replacement for the original motor that will fit without too much work? I'm not looking for a v twin or anything like that but another single cylinder that's comparable to what's in there now. IMG_0868.JPG.a0f0734ce1f2a017a8bb209c22b42296.JPG

K series Kohler will go.  So would a Magnum single cylinder.  If you want a brand new engine, a CH series Kohler single cylinder.  Pretty much any engine that was in an 82 series through the 18 series will work.  All require mods.

I'd be looking hard at a 13hp Predator from Harbor Freight. 

It will require modification,  but its probably about as close ( and cheap) as you will get.

JMech is there an engine that'll work without mods? 

Yes.  A running engine from another 482.
