Cutting with an old Sensation....Who else uses one?

Hi everyone,
After giving the Sensation a year off (it was buried and I didn't have time to dig it out last year) I put the old girl back into use, and I must say with a freshly sharpened blade the cut quality is fantastic. An added bonus of this machine is that you get a serious workout on hills, as it is not self-propelled.
The machine was repowered a few years ago with a Briggs engine, which seems to run fine. Has anyone ever put a commercial Honda engine on a Sensation? Would that engine fit without hacking up the deck? Does anyone know of any parts dealers that specialize in parts for these old machines?
So is there anyone else out there who still uses these machines?
