I need to increase the power on my 54 Hustler walkbehind. It has a 17hp Kaw on it. I've checked all the manufacturer's sites, and I can't seem to find where they offer size dimensions for Kaw, Honda, Briggs, or Kohler. Any helps would be appreciated.

The info you're looking for (bore and stroke) is usually available in the shop manual for each engine. If you are trying to make a 19 out of a 17 you would probably have to swap the crankshaft, cylinder liners, pistons, rods, carb jets and the camhaft. There is a 100 cc difference between the 2 engines and that is a lot in a Kawasaki engine.

This is just speculation and should not be taken as gospel. I am basing this on the differences between the single cylinder models which I do have a shop manual for.

I'd like to put a new larger motor on it, and need to check mounting holes and clearance for the muffler.

That info is real easy to get. I can even put you in touch with someone who is an expert on Hustlers. Just click here:

Kohler's information is on their web page. Click the link and then click on Performance & Diagrams near the top left of the page.
