Small engine problem

I'm trying to replace the engine on my log splitter. The original engine was an 8HP Tecumseh snowblower engine that has seen better days. I found a replacement today: 8HP Tecumseh snowblower engine, same mounting, same shaft location, same RPM. Only problem is the old one had a 1 inch dia shaft and the new has a 3/4 inch diameter shaft. Any ideas on how best to match up the new engine to the existing coupling?
I understand that they make keyed bushings that increase the diameter, but I haven't been able to locate any such thing. Thanks for your help.

Replacement Engine

Some brands of couplings are available with different size bore on either (each) end. Maybe you could be lucky and find the one you need. Would beat a bushing!
