I will be watching this thread as well, but I hope this piece of advice will help...
My diesel mechanic, when asked the similar question, said you should strongly consider taking dimensions of your current engine and replacing with something that will fit as easily as possible. In other words, a 36 hp motor, even from the same manufacture, may be very different in size and motor mounts.
He suggested this could take priority over several other factors. He spoke of several horror stories of having to do MAJOR work to make a engine fit!
Makes sense to me.
