Only issue would be for Ariens that use the one inch double pulley as that one is a3/4 shaft but still a great deal, If it did have the 1 shaft Id consider getting it for my Deluxe 24 and putting the 254cc on something else.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

You should just find a good used 8 or 10 hp flat head Tecumseh, especially if your talking about repowering that Simplicity still. Its your best bet, its what they used and they are good engines. Just saying. From experience working on tons of equipment and snowblowers, the Tecumseh's are still the best. Your second best option is the Briggs flat head winter engine that was also put to use by Simplicity, although those are harder to find and hold their high value.
If you arent in a hurry, I've got a 30 wide snapper with a black 10hp good Tecumseh single shaft 3/4 wide engine thats most likely coming off late in the year. I also have a good 8hp flat head winter Briggs, but its red and that's going to command big bucks, as they are really hard to come by.
If you use craigslist just put out a want ad for a Tecumseh. You should have no issues finding a good runner for $75 bucks.

Those Tecumseh motors were a dime a dozen, very popular back then but they didn't hold up as well as the Briggs motor. Only problem now is getting parts for the older Tecumseh engines since they went out of business a long time ago.
The Tecumseh's used to have a bad reputation for not holding up as well as the Briggs motors. Your Briggs "Winter" engine is the same as the standard motor except they used different shrouding around the carburetor and air intake to prevent carb icing, that's the harder parts to find, but a lot of Briggs parts are still available unless you have an old cast iron block motor.
I would stay away from those LCT engines, they are not that good.
If you really want reliability and a good engine, and don't mind spending the extra money, "Lots" of money, then look at the Honda GX series engine, but they will cost a lot more and normally outlast all the other motors combined.
