Motor Swap - 15.5--16 or 17hp

I have a Dynamark(Murray) mower with a 15.5hp Tecumseh OHV engine. It is in great shape but has a blown motor. It was run dry of oil and i believe it snapped the connecting rod.

I want to put another motor on it. So my question is do Briggs and Stratton have the same bolt pattern for mounting as Tecumseh and how many shaft length/diameter variants are there in the 15hp - 17hp range? Or are they all pretty similar?

Thanks so much for the help, i'm a newbie here so i appreciate it.

Both and have "technical info" on their websites where you look up engines,that show you the mounting bolt patterns and physical dimensions,etc..makes comparing what will swap on an older machine a lot simpler!..
