FB460 single cylinder engine.

FB460V single cylinder engine and the back of the block is blown out and parts are broken
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 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.
