Surely it's not as simple as unbolt the old and bolt on the new?

My 15hp Kaw quit on us last fall, only had 1400 hours. Valves stuck, bent push rods, etc. I think what killed mine was the plugged up air passage that goes from the carb area to the head, I found it after I took it apart. I bought a 17hp Kaw engine from J Thomas to replace it.

Yes it is , Really. Remove clutch, throttle cable, fuel line and 4 bolts. Less than 1 hour to swap.
