Log Splitter Engine Question

I am trying to find a mount for a Briggs 14.5HP IC Gold vertical shaft engine. The engine came out of a craftsman riding mower. The mount I am looking for connects the hydraulic pump to the engine. I have seen a lot for the horizontal shafts but am having a hard time finding one for a horizontal.

Any recommendations for hydraulic pump size for that motor ?

Any help is appreciated.

Have you checked Northern Tool's site?
That or GOOGLE.
I got a vertical engined log splitter out in the shed, but it only has like a 6hp or so quantum motor.

I haven't checked Northern Tool, thanks for the input. As for Google yes I have. Google results come back with a yes/no answer. I would hate to put $150 in a pump and then break it.

There should be a bypass valve on the pump that should keep you from breaking it. Same idea as to why it stops pushing at the end of the stroke.
