If you will call their 800 number with your engine model and spec. numbers they will be happy to help.....They also state pictures may not be the exact item.

how hard/easy is it to swap out an engine? I am mechanically inclined swapped the engine in my truck before, not messed with small engines much though.

If you have replaced the engine in your truck you can handle this little mower engine.

Word of advice;

Before starting take pictures, Close-ups all the way around the engine. They could come in handy on re-assembly.....

Walker uses horizontal shafts - your engine is a CH26S. Get the spec number off of the blower housing.

For EFI, I would go long block from Kohler instead of buying all the EFI parts again.
