engine replacement.

What is the best option for replacing a Kawasaki FH601v-cs06 shaft 1" x 80mm?

Would like to stay with Kawasaki but maybe a bump up in HP? please provide model #

This will be going on a Toro Z149

Thanks

I believe you will find the mounting bolt patterns to be the same.

I'm far from an authority on the Kaw KAI line. I seem to recall reading something about an improved oil pump to improve oil flow to the upper journal. What else may be involved, I'm not aware of. Someone more informed more than I will surely chime in.

Whatever you may choose, make sure it will fit in the confines of your mower engine compartment.

Definitely the cannister filter....will probably double the life of the engine.
