That body style in the later version used the Vanguard, you can put a vanguard in place of the  L head, maybe find another tractor at a sale to use as a donor.

Well, I am giving up, not going to put anymore money in it. I've got $2400 in this thing, so I'll try to sell as is.
Should be worth something with the attachments. 45" snowthrower, 50" mowing deck, 54" snow blade, Titan 3 pt hitch attachment to pull trailer. Has wheel weights, 2 link tire chains, liquid filled rear tires. Everything is in great condition but the engine.
Any ideas on what I could get for it?
Thanks

The valve seat is wallowed out, not reasonably repaired according to a Briggs master tech. The block is no longer available. A repair is beyond my ability.
Thanks
