been faced with this situation lots of times with the old junk I work on.

I don't like to waste anything, and I never junk anything.

So, good tractor with a badly broken engine.

I'd buy another side mount 8N that runs ok, but is truly ugly(cheap).

Yank the ugly ones motor, freshen it up if need be and put it in the good tractor.

Then take the broken engine and do my best to fix it. Used parts wherever possible. Put it in the ugly one, get everything working, leave it ugly, and sell it as a decent work tractor.

Finding just a used engine will get you back in the game,

BUT, after fixing it, you will have that broken engine in the shop......'ya know, I bet I could fix that'....

You will, and then you will need a tractor to put it in anyway...

That's why I just buy just another tractor.(cheaper too, in the long run)

(if the tractor is special to you, just hold out til you find another 'donor' that is the same years serial number range)

LOL not everyone thinks like that. If I were in that situation once the holed block was out I'd pull all of the good parts off of it and send the rest to a scrapper and never give it another thought. I got too much other stuff to do to worry about a holed block.
