Default Does a vertical shaft 5hp block work with horizontal 5hp parts?

I have a 5hp briggs with a bad block if I got an old lawn mower and ripped it apart for its block will it work it would have to be a briggs 5hp though. And what I mean is if my internals would fit in the other block. And I would be able to use my crank and side cover?
