FB460V single cylinder engine and the back of the block is blown out and parts are broken
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 11 months ago.

With block damaged, it will also have crankshaft and head damage. So engine is not worth rebuilding. What is the engine in? Make and model? I would go for a replacement.

Obviously it isn't fixable as it sits but am wondering if I could replace with a short block or would a new/used motor be a better option and what is a compatible motor.?

At first glance I do not see where there is a replacement for the engine. Not a common application. So it looks like finding a like engine would be the easiest, or having to adapt a Briggs or Kohler with the same crankshaft dimension and the change over of the other parts.
