Reapair or replace Kohler 15 HP

Im looking for some of my mowers posesses a 15 HP Kohler, it has seized.....I have spoken with many mechanics and the general consesus is that it would be more trouble repairing the existing engine, than purchasing a replacement. I have discovered that a replacement would cost anywhere from 650-750 smackers. A mechanic freind of mine tells me that he could have it bored and replace the piston(s) and rings, and there is a chance it may work, with a lot less cost to me......anyone have any advice or experience to share. Im just thinking that if I attempt to repair and it works, great, I only had to spend $200, but if it does not work, Im out the $200 or so, plus the $700............?????????? Thanks, Eric
