Just out of interest, what's happened to your old one? Thrown a rod or something?

Yep, con rod snapped and completely destroyed the piston and pot. Not a pretty sight

Worth repairing or fit a new one? Might just be worth buying a new one and cracking on with the workload.

Best idea is a new short block, contact your local Briggs dealer for a price

Agreed, providing everything else is ok, heads, carb, starter motor etc.  That would be the way to go.
