Replace Kawasaki FH580V-BS45 With...?

I have a BobCat ProCat with a 19hp Kawasaki FH580V-BS45 engine that has seized on me with only 765 hours. I am looking to swap out the engine with something that will not require much more then pulling out the old as bolting down the new. The mower will not be used daily, just in emergency situations, so I'm not trying to spend a ton on the new engine. Although, I would like to have a little more then 19hp.

With that said, what engine would you recommend replacing it with and where would be the most affordable place online to order it from ? Thanks

It doesn't matter because you are always going to have to deal with throttle and wiring and pulley and fuel line hook ups with any engine, there is no such thing as four bolts and done but for the easiest swap I can only think of using an exact replacement so another FH580V-BS45, that would likely be the easiest in relative terms as it would hook up in exact reverse order from how the old one came apart...
