Repower Ariens 8526

I need a new engine for my Ariens 8526. The current one is a 8HP Tecumseh LH318SA. It has a dual shaft setup. I have seen a few 8HP Tecumseh engines that are dual shafts that were taken off MTD snow blowers. Could these work as a replacement? See the pictures below. The first picture is of a 8HP Tecumseh from a MTD snowblower. The second picture is the belt set up on my current snowblower.

pull out your crankshaft and camshaft and and clean them with muriatic acid. swap the parts over. basically use the mtd engine as a shortblock

Thanks, that seems like the best solution at the moment.
