Small diesel/gas engine question

Anybody know somewhere i can get a good used 16-20 horsepower horizontal shaft gas engine, or a 12+ horsepower horizontal shaft diesel engine? I have a compact tractor that i need to replace the vintage (1974) briggs, one cylinder 16hp engine on ... it just cant do the job after all these years....

Just a shot in the dark

I used to just call around to landscaping/lawnmower repair places to get used motors. I did a bunch of go-carts and minibikes in high school. I probally picked up 5 or 6 used motors that way.

Nothing that big though. Mostly horizontal shaft (snowblower motors) 5 horse briggs & stratton or Tehcumsah (sp)
