Vanguard twins area popular choice for JD's. I think they are from 16 to 23hp. They are industrial quality engines that have a good reputation for long life. If you do a search for re power options there should be some kits available but they are pricey.

From what I've heard, Jim's Tractor Repairs (TMO's last link) has about the best conversion kit for Briggs and Stratton Vanguard and a reputation for answering questions you might have.

If you want a real project, check out Carroll Stream Motors. They have a 20 hp diesel for $1600...I am planning on putting that in my 317 when it is time.
