Toro Power Clear single stage 212cc... correct re-power?

Local buddy has a 721E with a burned out crankshaft bearing (ran out of oil). I'd love to swap in the Predator 212cc but am unsure what shaft adapters I'll need.

I know there are a TON of resources for two stage blower engine upgrades. I'd like to complete a power swap for a single stage Toro.

The Toro engine is a Loncin LC170FDS-2 but I see Loncin makes that engine with a ton of different crankshaft lengths and diameters. The Toro engine part number is 121-4225, described as LC170FDS-2. I found the basic Loncin engine but don't know what shaft is right.

I also don't know the HF engine's equivalent Loncin number. So i can't even say the Predator is the same LC170FDS-2 as the Toro, irregardless of the shaft question.

I see the Predator 212cc has the following specs:

Shaft diameter 3/4 in
Shaft length 2.43 in. / 61.7 mm
Keyway 3/16 in

1. Does anyone know the shaft specs for the Toro LC170FDS-2 engine?
2. Does anyone know the Loncin engine number for the Predator 212cc?

Much appreciated -- I'll keep the group updated every time I learn something. Hopefully this can become the thread for single stage Toro re-powers.

i know this has been a while, but did you ever find this engine? i have a Toro 721 that probably will cost me more to put together so i will part it out.
