But if you're cool with taking a chance, they don't go cheap so it might be worth a shot,
just you might want to be aware you might not come out but so good.
I wouldn't bother. It sounds like they got this one under conyrol. I'm confused, the blades spin even with the PTO disengaged??? Sounds like an easy fix.

Well. Bad decision for me. I am now stuck with a piece of crap. Turns out, after giving it a tune up, the motor leaks oil. Needs new gasket. That sucks. Learned my lesson. Gotta pretty much sell it for parts now even though it still runs.

Thanks again for everyone help.

Sorry to here that.
I have a 14.5 hp kawi with ohv.
You can have for 200.00 with tune up.
Or 150.00 without tune up.
Or just part it out on here or ebay.
That's what I do with some mowers I come across.'
But pretty easy to swap motors if you stay with kawi.
A wise man sees trouble come and hides himself.
